Ailbhe - pronounced Alva - joined Shared Care Scotland in June 2022 as the Short Breaks Fund Manager. She has worked and volunteered in the third sector for over 10 years, primarily for arts/culture organisations.

Before joining the team, Ailbhe worked in grant making at the People’s Postcode Lottery, awarding funding to good causes all over the UK.

What she enjoys most about Shared Care Scotland, more specifically the Short Breaks Fund, is that there’s a real emphasis on relationship building and collaborating with carers, cared for people, carer support organisations and grant holders.
