Having admired the work of Neighbourhood Networks for many years, I was delighted to get the opportunity to join the organisation as a Network Manager for Glasgow and East Renfrewshire.
I have 19 years experience working in social care and the third sector as a Project Manager and Service Manager. Much of my work has been to ensure that individuals with a range of needs have opportunities and the right support to live the lives of their choosing. I have enjoyed contributing to a range innovative projects that have helped many individuals to have more meaningful and inclusive lives, seeing them successfully overcome social isolation, to become more independent and also grow in confidence. I have a strong interest in social justice and volunteer as a Trustee Board Member of a local charity that supports people who are refugees and seeking asylum.
