STRIVE THIRD SECTOR DELEGATE ELECTION 2019-2021 | Lesley Kay, North Berwick Youth Project

I feel passionately that the third sector should have a voice when it comes to children and young people’s issues and would do my utmost to ensure the views of the sector across the county are represented. It is very important to encourage inclusivity to make sure all groups get an opportunity to put their views forward.

I have worked at North Berwick Youth Project since 2005 and am a member of the local Children and Youth Network, so have an understanding of the issues facing children and young people. Previously, I have had experience of East Lothian Partnership as for 2 years I was co-Chair of North Berwick Coastal Area Partnership.

Through my work and contacts, I can see where there are gaps in services and areas that need further development, but I would wish seek the views of the sector so that we could establish priorities for action.
