Currently part time Co-ordinator for The Care and Wellbeing Co-operative responsible for helping to grow the Co-op membership, promoting Self-Directed Support and encouraging a community enterprise approach to care, support and wellbeing provision in rural Perthshire. Donna has worked in the care, education and equalities field for 30 years including a number of years in Africa with children with HIV and learning disabilities.
Donna has a passion for fairness and ensuring people have opportunities to live the life they want. She is both a paid and unpaid carer and appreciates the pleasure, privilege and the pressure those roles bring. Donna is able to take a strategic view of a constantly changing care landscape and work out how this affects an individual or family needing support living in a rural area. More importantly she has the courage and commitment to try out different ways of working if she feels it will make a DIFFERENCE.
