Tribute to Cathy

We were saddened to learn of the passing of our colleague and friend Cathy Scott (2nd left), a member of the UPDATE and Disability Information Scotland family for over 18 years.

Cathy joined the team in 2000 at the outset of our journey providing accurate, up to date and relevant information for disabled people.  With a smile and willingness to turn her hand to any of the challenges that came her way Cathy embodied the spirit of DIS.

We will remember Cathy fondly, not just for the fantastic job she did and for the many callers she helped on our helpline, but for the happiness and fun that she brought to the workplace.  Although her own mobility was restricted she would never allow this to hold her back from living her life to the full and she was an inspiration to us all.

We’ll miss Cathy, but she’ll always be remembered.
