Lisa Jacobs was born in Jersey and has lived all her life in the Island. Lisa is a mother of two boys and is a carer for her eldest son, a teenager with complex needs.
Lisa knows from first-hand experience that families encounter a whole range of barriers when trying to secure the best possible care for their loved ones and therefore she has been actively involved in initiatives that support individuals with special needs and their families.
She runs a parent group at Mont á L’Abbé School and is a former committee member of SNAP; The Special Needs Advisory Panel and the Education Department’s Parent Carer Forum Jersey.
Lisa is passionate about improving both local health and social care services for all islanders as Care is vital for everyone. As a local Commissioner, Lisa will ensure the Commission understands daily life from a carer’s perspective, what the needs and expectations are from services providers and more importantly she will ensure the voices of local services users, carers and their families are heard.
