Emma joined Who Cares? Scotland in 2017 as an Advocate in North Lanarkshire. Emma worked closely with Care Experienced young people and young people with Additional Support Needs throughout their care journey, ensuring that their views and rights were upheld. In July 2019 Emma joined the Training and Education team as a Training and Education Officer.
In previous years Emma spent time as a residential worker, working and living closely with Care Experienced young people. Emma then moved onto become a Behavioural Support Advisor with the Positive Behaviour Support Team within the Richmond Fellowship, where she worked closely with individuals with sever autism.
Volunteering is very close to Emma’s heart and she has worked with young people for over 11 years across different organisations. Emma spent many years as a Sgt with the Army Cadet Force, supporting and training young people through their time with the ACF.
Emma’s experiences have given her knowledge and confidence in her new role and she is excited for the future in the Training and Education team!
