Ashleigh de Verteuil
Board of Directors
Ashleigh is one of our newly appointed Board directors, with policy experience in health and social care, social security, and loneliness and isolation. She is currently a Policy Officer at Age Scotland, and previously worked at Leonard Cheshire and the Health and Social Care Alliance Scotland. Passionate about social equality, Ashleigh has an MSc in Social Research and an MA(Hons) History from the University of Edinburgh.
Building on this experience, Ashleigh is keen to use social research for social good, and is excited by the opportunity to work with Ecas to help ensure it meets its strategic objectives in delivering services for disabled people in Edinburgh.
Outside of work Ashleigh is one of the uncraftiest crafty people you’ll meet, which means her flat is littered with misshapen knitted, sewn, and ceramic creations.
What clients say about Ecas
We feel confident now and realise we can do things we couldn’t do before but we can do them now!
Thank you Ecas for supporting us to go on a holiday. The cottage has been great: wheelchair accessible with amazing views around.
The Dukan family
(My befriender) brings the outside world in.
The group is a fantastic way to come together and talk about things: books; our lives; what’s important to us.
Ecas: a good place to be.
