New SCRA Board Members Appointed
Two new Board Members have been appointed to our Board. The Minister for Children and Young People, Claire Haughey MSP, has today announced the appointments of Kay Barton and Lorraine Moore as new Board Members.
Their appointments are for four years and will run from 1 November 2021 until 31 October 2025.
Kay Barton’s working life in government and the Third Sector was all about social justice, wellbeing and addressing underlying causes of poverty and exclusion. She has been for over 25 years a trustee of several charities, both local and national. Kay has further developed her strategic, governance, management and financial skills in these roles. She chaired a family support organisation through the recent difficult Covid-19 times. Kay also mentors young people, and learns a lot from listening to and supporting them.
Lorraine Moore is a qualified social worker with over 30 years’ experience in working alongside children, young people, and families. Lorraine set up the Hub for Success in 2018, a collaborative hybrid project which works directly with people with care experience to access further and higher education alongside lobbying for change in policy and practice around further and higher education. Lorraine worked as an advocate for 14 years, supporting children and young people to attend and participate in Children’s Hearings. Lorraine was a board member of the Stop-Go Group for the Independent Care Review and is committed to Keeping the Promise.
Congratulating them on their appointment, SCRA’s Board Chair Michelle Miller said: “We are delighted to welcome Kay and Lorraine to SCRA’s Board. They bring a wealth of experience with them and we look forward to working with them.”
