I’m Karen and I’m the Chief Executive of the Scottish Waterways Trust. I lead the organisation and make sure we do all we can to help secure a brighter future for the people, wildlife and waterways of Scotland.
I’ve always been passionate about helping people and, before I came to the Trust, I worked with NCH Action for Children and Barnardo’s Scotland. But I’ve found my place with the Scottish Waterways Trust.
From canal college, which has grown from an ambitious idea to a reality that’s helping our young people unlock their potential and take the first steps towards employment, to our work on the Caledonian Canal that’s put the waterway right at the heart of communities, I take huge pride in the breadth of projects we undertake and how we deliver our work with passion, enthusiasm, fun and creativity.
Get in touch with me if you’d like to discuss new partnerships, projects, ideas, governance issues and strategy or organisational donations.
