I’ve been leading the team at Alltnacriche since 2008, having been involved with SU Scotland for the best part of 25 years, as a camper, leader, team leader and volunteer at many work parties at Kingscross. I previously worked at RBS and was also a director of a youth work project in Linlithgow, where my family and I lived prior to moving take up this role.
I love my job, which involves leading a team of talented staff, working out faith together and seeing young folks coming to Alltnacriche and having an excellent experience, whether at a Classroom Outdoors residential, SU Weekend, SU Holiday, or a youth weekend.
I’m the Schools Coordinator at Alltnacriche which keeps me busy between Easter and October. If you are bringing a school group to the centre then I’ll work with you to create and deliver a programme that is just right for your group. I’m also SU Scotland’s Regional Worker, for Moray, South Highlands & Islands. I support and encourage local SU Scotland volunteers and churches, and help schools by offering a Christian input through assemblies, RME lessons and SU Groups.
Over time we’ll introduce other folks who work and live at Alltnacriche.
