helping more organisations work collaboratively
Affordable Credit Officer
I joined Engage in November 2021 as a dedicated Affordable Credit Officer. My background is in the Third Sector and I always work with the ethos of helping others who are unseen or do not have a strong voice. I coordinate the Renfrewshire Affordable Credit Alliance network, promote affordable credit at every opportunity and form partnerships that underpin our desire to ensure Renfrewshire’s residents avoid using higher cost credit providers. We will achieve this by working with practitioners, groups and organisations who deal with our more vulnerable groups in their communities.
RACA has been awarded a charter mark from the Scottish Illegal Money Lending unit which is fantastic recognition of work done to spread awareness of and help people to report on illegal lending activity. I will continue to support the pledge made and you can see the certificate below.
My hobbies consist of spending too much time solving any sort of puzzle and actually being hilarious as I have had success as a stand-up comedian – I once got paid a tenner. I love my dog walks too with Snoop, my Patterdale terrier.
