Rachael is an experienced services manager and facilitator with a current focus on Entrepreneurship and Service Design in the third and public sector. She works closely with organisations to develop new ideas and a culture of innovation from the frontline, as well as supporting grant making organisations to enable their grantees with creative problem solving and innovation programmes.
With an academic background in Youth and Community Development, her previous operational roles in both Scotland and Australia have been underpinned by an inclusion, wellbeing and equalities focus on themes from education to homelessness to public mental health. Her predominant focus and passion though will always be in work that centres on child and youth mental health.
Weekends are almost always taken up with yoga, friends and good food.
