Alison Watson

Director of Shelter Scotland

We all build our lives in the homes we live in. It is a huge privilege to work with so many people committed to making a right to a home a reality for people across Scotland.

Alison became Director of Shelter Scotland in June 2020 following her previous role as Deputy Director, leading services, volunteering and involvement across Scotland.

She joined Shelter Scotland in 2002, bringing extensive leadership experience in health and social care, mostly in the Third Sector, but also with local authorities and the NHS.

Alison also worked in the mental health field, helping lead development of innovative services and making a major contribution to pioneering the involvement of people who experience mental health issues in the design, delivery and management of services.
