In this role, Mairi will have overall responsibility for the organisation’s transformation agenda. This will include the development, delivery, evaluation and alignment of a transformational strategy for Mencap.

In her seven years at Cornerstone, Mairi was responsible for varied business support functions with particular expertise in HR, strategy, and technology.

She was responsible for setting up and chairing the Evaluation Working Group, comprised of the Scottish Government, Care Inspectorate, Scottish Social Services Council, Healthcare Improvement Scotland and the University of Strathclyde. Mairi was also previously Executive Director of Resources of the Riverside Group, a housing and care services organisation, for 13 years.

“I am thrilled to be joining Mencap, having been hugely impressed by their work to drive change for the better for people with a learning disability. As someone who thrives on being part of a great team that transforms organisations, I am excited to have the opportunity to build on that with Mencap and look forward to getting started.”

Edel Harris, Chief Executive of the learning disability charity Mencap, said:

I am so pleased to welcome Mairi to Mencap. Mairi brings a wealth of experience having worked in the social care and housing sectors in both England and Scotland. She has been involved in introducing an innovative new model of social care, from the design of strategy through to successful implementation, and I look forward to her joining Mencap and helping to lead the work we are doing to improve the lives of the 1.5 million people with a learning disability in the UK”.
