SRN welcomes new staff member

18th July 2012

We are delighted to welcome a new member to the SRN team. Louise Christie takes up the post of Network Manager (Policy & Development).

Louise was previously the CEO of an Ayrshire social enterprise delivering homeless, volunteering and employment support services. Prior to that, she worked in a number of consultancy, policy and development roles in the public and private sectors in areas including employment, regeneration, social care, funding and grant making and social enterprise/third sector development.

As Louise notes: “My role at SRN is a new and challenging one. I will lead the development and implementation of a policy programme that will build on SRN’s activities and research undertaken to promote a recovery approach and ensure that the recovery voice influences policy and practice across Scotland. My initial priorities will be to focus on self-directed support, the integration of adult health and social care and welfare reform.
