An ambitious mum-of-two is launching her own business after struggling to find a job that fits around caring for her children.

Danielle Ward, from North Walsham, will start her new cleaning service, Mum's Housekeeping, on February 26.

She will be completing housekeeping tasks for those who need help in the surrounding community and hopes to one day employ other parents who have found themselves in a similar working situation.

Mrs Ward explained that she had worked from the age of 16 until she had her children and became a housewife.

"At age 20, after struggling with fertility, I had my first child with my husband and after more fertility treatment at age 23, I finally had my second child," she said.

"I did not want to lose any time with them because of our difficulties, so we agreed that I would become a housewife."

Over time, Mrs Ward started to miss the world of work but struggled to find a role that fitted around family life.

"All the jobs wanted me to work in the hours where I could not be available for my children - I would essentially be working to fund a babysitter to do my job as a mother for me.

"I know there are plenty of self-employed cleaners and businesses around Norfolk, but I hope that I can be successful and earn enough to take on other parents and help them out too.

"I'm not anything special and I'm not trying to be better than anyone else, I'm just a local mum trying to help others."

Mum's Housekeeping will operate around Norfolk and enquiries can be made via the business's Facebook page.
