We are delighted to welcome Irene and Ann to Disability Information Scotland. With extensive experience in both disability support and advice provision they are a welcome addition to the team.
A little bit from Irene on her background, “I have experience of volunteering with a number of charities at different times in my life but have worked in Higher Education for the last decade, training disabled students and advising on assistive technology. I am passionate about inclusion and really enjoying working within the charity sector again. I have been working with DIS for just over a month now. Each member of staff has a different background. I’m happy I have some things that I can bring and a whole lot that I can learn from my colleagues.”
Ann told us, “I have worked in the charity sector for a number of years, with time spent at Citizens Advice Bureau. I am looking forward to working with DIS to continue empowering people to take control of the issues they face and providing appropriate information and support.”
