We are delighted to welcome Danielle Farrel and Karen Procek our new Project Coordinators to the In Control Scotland team.

She is a self-advocate and will often be a voice for others who would otherwise struggle to have their voices heard and to live the life they want to lead.
Karen is a highly skilled and experienced training facilitator with over 20 years of experience working in the Voluntary sector and is committed to influencing change through a rights-based approach to education and discussion, increasing confidence and competence, and raising awareness of how to support children and adults with additionality.
We are really looking forward to working with them.
