Gaitherin Co-ordinators

We are very lucky to have two wonderful ladies, Suzi and Tiggy who are in charge of co-ordinating all our staff at the Gaitherin and organising the Residential aspect too. Here’s what they have to say about themselves.

Suzi – Shadow and Residential Co-Ordinator

“I have worked at the Gaitherin since Easter 2017 and have been working with young people since 2005. I started working with an arts organisation in Glasgow while studying Community Arts at Strathclyde University. I have had various roles since then, working with groups and individuals in a way that suits each situation best. I lead a residential holiday camp in the summer, and work on a daily basis with young people in Inverurie Academy in my capacity as a Pupil Support Worker. I work with children who are struggling with a variety of issues that make school hard.”

Tiggy – Youth Worker and Tutor Co-Ordinator

“Originally I trained as a nursery nurse at college and worked in nurseries. Then I went on to have my first son and became a nanny for two different families where he came along. Once I had my twins I took a break from work to raise my own mad household but always made sure I was at the gaitherin!! I’ve missed one since I was 8!”

Both Suzi and Tiggy have training in 1st Aid, food hygiene, child protection and have a PVG for working with children and protected adults.
