Justina joined Scottish Families as CEO in June 2017, following previous roles in partnership development, and research and policy in Scotland and New Zealand. This included roles in community justice (focused on reducing reoffending), community planning, public policy and equal employment opportunities.
Justina’s role at Scottish Families includes providing strategic leadership for the charity, supporting the Board in its governance role, making sure we have the resources (money, people and skills) to do our job, and driving forward our work to respond to changing needs and issues.
She is committed to championing the hidden role of families, campaigning for improved support for families in their own right, and enjoys working with so many interesting, amazing and experienced people across Scotland.
Justina lives with her family on the Ayrshire coast and enjoys holidays and travel and catching up with friends.
