I’m Allan Ramsay and I am a community development worker working on Tackling Poverty Together.
TPT seeks to support people most affected by welfare reforms to develop their own local solutions to the issues that they face. Working across Glasgow, Lanarkshire and West Dunbartonshire, I support people with community food co-ops employability work and welfare rights support. Within the TPT staff team I am responsible for collating financial inclusion information and I am interested in sustainable funding for projects.
I come from an education background with a focus on young people. I have worked extensively in faith based and community organisations. My work has involved a lot of project development work, with organisational partnerships being a key feature. The other area of my work is mental health awareness with a focus on wellbeing.
I’m married, with a young child and when I’m not working I enjoy cooking, hillwalking, films and trips to the park to play on the swings.
