Email Address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Phone Number: 0131 555 9113
Following my degree in social policy at Edinburgh University, I worked in the civil service before returning to University to train as a social worker. I quickly moved into the Third Sector nearly 20 years ago. This has included working for Disability Scotland, Stirling Council on Disability, Senior Action Group Edinburgh (SAGE), VOCAL. Most recently I worked for 8 years at Parkinson’s UK as the service development officer (Scotland), working to improve health and social care services for people living with Parkinson’s across Scotland.
In between Third Sector jobs I have also gained an MSc in Applied Social Research and worked as a lecturer and researcher. After taking time out to have twins I am excited to be back in the innovative, interesting and challenging world of the Third Sector in Edinburgh with EVOC.
As the Development Worker (Adult Health and Wellbeing) I will primarily be working organisations delivering services for people with Learning Disabilities and on Self Directed Support (SDS).
