We are thrilled to extend a warm and formal welcome to our newest trustee, Eilidh McLaughlin, whose extensive expertise adds a valuable addition to Dundee Carers Centre.

Eilidh is an adopted Dundonian who moved here with her family in June 2022.  She enjoys her new city, the challenge of building new friendships and wanted to give something back to the local area who had made her feel so welcome.  The Dundee Carers Centre seemed a good fit to allow Eilidh to help apply her knowledge for the benefit of carers while learning a lot more about carers’ experiences and needs.

Eilidh took up the position of Head of the Digital Citizen Unit in Scottish Government in April 2022.  The Unit is new within the Digital Directorate and covers the Connecting Scotland programme and the Ethical Digital Nation team.  This role combines Eilidh’s previous experience in corporate governance, equalities and information management.  The ethos of the Unit is to make sure that No One is Left Behind and to ensure that digital work is done in an ethical, inclusive way.

Outside of work, Eilidh’s time is very much taken up with her husband and young daughter, though when she can, she enjoys the rugby, a good book and cooking.
