Our Committee

Committee June 2019The Scottish Guidance Association committee consists of a range of teachers, involved in the personal support of children and young people in Scotland. We are all volunteers, who believe passionately in supporting young people, as well as the professionals who work with them - "Bringing Support Together". 

We meet, about every two months, on a Saturday morning, in Stirling or Dunblane (and, more recently on Zoom!), where we make arrangements for the Conference, and share our views on current developments and our experiences.
