I have been with Fife Gingerbread since 2017 and am now in the role of Strategic Manager. We are a grassroots children and families charity empowering lone parents and families in need in Fife. The vision of the organisation is to create “better todays and brighter tomorrows” for children and young people growing up in poverty. This is achieved through a collaborative approach which is family led, relationships driven and grounded by co-production. As the organisation has developed and grown so has our use of data, which can be really challenging in a small community anchor organisation. My leadership experience has taught me that where data is collected for a purpose and applied meaningfully it can greatly improve organisations strengths, resilience and stability.
