Fraser McKinlay, Chief Executive of The Promise Scotland said:

“I am delighted that Alison will be joining us as Head of Support, and I know we will benefit immensely from her skills and experience.
Alison brings first-hand knowledge of delivering the type of tangible changes in service delivery that we need. This is the type of approach that we need to see replicated and scaled up across Scotland so that the promise made to Scotland’s children and families is kept.

I am incredibly excited to be joining the team at The Promise Scotland. I am really proud of the work that we have driven forward in North Ayrshire and I look forward to utilising that experience more widely.
