We are delighted to welcome two new members of the team who joined us over the summer!
Iona MacTaggart joined us as Collective Advocacy Worker for the Seen But Not Heard project. The group is for anyone with lived experience of an eating disorder. Iona’s role is to facilitate the group, assisting them in taking their priorities forward and ensuring they can express their ideas and hopes.
Madhu Venugopal has joined as Peer Volunteer Development Worker. Her role at CAPS is to encourage new people to get involved. She supports volunteers to use lived experience of mental health issues and to develop their skills.
Madhu also facilitates the Peer Forum. The forum brings together people working and volunteering in a peer way in Edinburgh. They talk about what is important to them and raise awareness of issues affecting peer work.
