Job Title: Development Worker (Community Investment)
Phone Number: 0131 555 9100
I joined EVOC on the first day of lockdown in March 2020 after 5 years at Changeworks. Before that I spent 15 years working in student recruitment for a university in London. One of the main aspects of my current job is to support the Community Mobilisation stream of the work on the Edinburgh Pact. I am excited about how a community-led approach can support early intervention and ensure that people stay healthy and well for longer. I also work closely with Stef Milenkovic on supporting older people’s service providers in Edinburgh and our Older People’s Service Providers’ Forum.
I have been recently seconded to Voluntary Health Scotland for 2 days a week to support a Scottish Government short-life scoping project on the establishment of a national network for Community Link Workers based in primary care settings in Scotland.
In my spare time, I like going to museums, galleries, the cinema and I love eating out and enjoying the many amazing pubs and restaurants in Edinburgh!
