Everything we do relies upon the skills and commitment of over 2000 staff. This includes support workers, team leaders, local managers and relief register workers from as far apart as Thurso and Stranraer. Our teams across Scotland work hard every day in people’s homes and communities to enable them to achieve the life they want.
We are supported by our Board as well as staff working in local offices and at our main administrative office at The Square in Glasgow.
The team who oversee the main strategic functions of Key and Community Lifestyles, and represent us at a range of external networks, are:
