Dorothy Watson

Networks Manager - North Lanarkshire (Wishaw, Shotts, Motherwell, Bellshill)

I feel valued as being a part of Neighbourhood Networks team.

My name is Dorothy Watson and I have been employed with Neighbourhood Networks for 10 years. Approximately 15 years ago I changed my career to social care, a move that has been life changing. I have experience of working with people from all backgrounds.

I began with Neighbourhood Networks in 2006 as a Community Living Worker, moved onto Lead Community Living Worker in 2013 before moving onto a management role in 2016. I currently manage 6 of our networks in North Lanarkshire. I am able to continue a job I am very passionate about furthering my career as a manager whilst still maintaining a connection to the membership.

I have enthusiasm and lots of energy for community connections and I strive to create new partnerships with local organisations for all individuals of Neighbourhood Networks and the wider community. I feel this is particularly fitting with the new Health & Social Care integration and allows Neighbourhood Network to excel and grow. I feel valued as being a part of Neighbourhood Networks team.
