Lyndsay Fraser Robertson
Lyndsay worked in the social care sector since 2013 following a brief career in financial services. She has supported women fleeing domestic abuse, provided respite for single parent families of children with disabilities, supported children and carers in Kinship Care and most recently worked with children and families affected by substance use.
In 2017 Lyndsay was awarded the Winston Churchill Travelling Fellowship to research services for pregnant and parenting women using substances. She wrote a report with four main findings and recommendations called Keeping Families Together Safely.
Using her experience she currently project manages a Fathers Project for Fathers and children affected by substance use and supervise a Parenting Programme called Parents Under Pressure. This programme provides needs-led, tailored support to families of babies and young children experiencing challenging life adversities.
She is looking forward to working with the team at Cattanach in contributing to making Scotland the best place to grow up.
