Denise provides administration support to the Business Manager, helping to manage the organisation’s budget and ensure that our office runs smoothly.
Denise spent the first 17 years of her working life in the brewing industry before taking a major decision to leave it all behind to study a BA course in Community Education at Edinburgh University.
After graduating, she worked at The Risk Factory, an educational centre that teaches people how to be safer in a variety of settings including home safety, fire safety and internet safety. She also enjoyed six years with the Scottish Community Safety Network, working with many partners and organising a number of events including the bi-annual Safer Communities Awards. In addition, Denise has worked across Midlothian in a number of youth work roles including supporting young people on a one to one basis.
