Appointed 2 July 2021
"Hi I am Katie and I am a Board member because I passionately believe it’s crucial that children’s hearings and the decisions made, are centred on the best interests of infants, children and young people.
I have been a Panel Member for three years and it has been one of the most rewarding experiences I have had. I know how important it is to encourage young people attending to feel welcome and safe to participate.
I work with children and young people as the Chief Executive of Scouts Scotland and I volunteer as a Beaver Leader. I also bring extensive governance and board experience as a Third Sector Leader and a Director of the Association of Chief Officers of Scottish Voluntary Organisations.
I believe that together we can make a difference and keep The Promise that every child grows up loved, safe and respected – able to realise their full potential."
