“They will bring invaluable experience and expertise to an already impressive team and I look forward to working closely with them all to ensure Quarriers remains at the forefront of Scotland’s third sector.”
Ms Harper, added: “With a large and diverse portfolio of services, Quarriers needs a board of trustees which reflects its needs and our new trustees will be of great benefit to the charity’s governance and strategic ambitions.
“Due to ever-changing external factors, we are constantly reviewing how we work, and with the collective expertise now at our disposal we are in a great position to continue to change and adapt to meet the needs of health and social care.
“It is fantastic we can work so closely with our Board of Trustees who have such a wide range of skills and knowledge and we are extremely grateful for their voluntary support which, ultimately, helps us optimise outcomes for the people we support.”
