My role is to support Safeguarding Awareness Coordinators across Scotland to work with their Training Managers to ensure the effective delivery of Safeguarding training ensuring that compliance is discussed and addressed at senior level in Regions and Districts.
I have been involved in Scouting for many years and have been a Safeguarding Coordinator, Scout Leader, District Commissioner and currently a GSL. I was also a member of the UK wide Safeguarding Development Group.
In my professional career I was a police officer but spent most of my career as a detective. I worked as both an investigator and a senior manager in many complex child protection investigations and have vast experience of working collaboratively with other agencies.
