Broker and Coordinator for North Ayrshire
Kaye worked in a senior leadership capacity in Customer Service and Operations in the tourism and travel industry for the majority of her career and she was very fortunate to travel overseas extensively with work. In 2015 she left the corporate life and relocated back to Scotland to be able to access a better support network for her son, who was diagnosed with a progressive neurological condition and ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder). Kaye joined our team as a broker in May 2017 after meeting one of our Directors on The Partners in Policymaking Course (a leadership programme for people or parents of children with disabilities).
As a single parent, Kaye understands the tremendous challenges that come with raising a child with additional support needs. She has personal experience of the Social Services Assessment process and managing an individual budget. Kaye enjoys working with people of all ages, but has a special affinity with families who have children with disabilities or on the Autism spectrum.
Kaye is passionate about supporting other families to navigate the system, understand their entitlement and ensure they get the best support and outcome for their loved ones or themselves.
