helping more organisations work collaboratively
Community & Partnership Manager
I joined Engage Renfrewshire in November 2019 as Volunteer Development Officer, moving to the Community Mental Health and Wellbeing Fund Officer role in January 2021 before taking on the Community and Partnership Manager role in September 2023.
My previous roles at Engage have given me a huge appreciation for the partnership working seen across Renfrewshire, and for the charitable sector’s vital role in delivering community supports, services, and activities.
As manager I oversee the Community and Voluntary Action team, who can offer guidance and support on a range of topics including: charity start up, volunteer recruitment and retention, funding and training opportunities, racial inclusion and accessibility, and financial inclusion.
Along with these duties I am also maintaining an oversight of the delivery of the Community Mental Health and Wellbeing Fund for Renfrewshire.
The Community Mental Health and Wellbeing Fund continues to be an exciting venture for Engage as we are manage the distribution of over £500,000 in to Renfrewshire’s charitable sector to support community mental health initiatives and projects.
Outside of work I enjoy visiting Scotland’s impressive castles, playing with my lurcher, and being by the sea.
