Katherine Crawford - Chief Executive

Joining the charity as our Chief Executive Officer in July 2023, Katherine Crawford has 19 years of experience in the charity sector, working with Parkinson's UK. Katherine has seen first-hand the challenges older people can face through that work and it is seeing the impact of charities like ours that energises and inspires her.

Bringing experience of influencing and campaigning at the Scottish government, working with volunteers and colleagues in developing and delivering services to benefit people wherever they live, Katherine is keen to focus her energy now to ensure every single older person in Scotland is confident that their voice is heard and knows that we are here.
