The Why Not? Trust for Care Experienced Young People leads the way young people are supported when ageing out of care in Scotland. We do this through challenging the fears and boundaries that define the professional relationship, reducing loneliness and isolation and protecting the right to family life.
The Why Not? Trust is allowing those who are ageing out of care, to maintain connections with people whom they have been supported by while in our care.
Nicki McLaughlin has been appointed full time dedicated Service Manager, to look after all operational matters relating to the Why Not? service.
Nicki has worked for Care Visions for 4 years and is passionate about continued relationships for young people ageing out of care. She is a trained facilitator in Maps and Paths (Person Centred Planning) which is a fundamental tool used in The Why Not? Trust service.
Nicki manages a number of staff who currently work for the service on a sessional basis, to ensure that young adults from anywhere in Scotland can contact The Why Not? Trust.
