Jimmy is deeply committed to improving the lives of the most vulnerable groups in our societies.

Jimmy works at the Centre for Excellence for Looked after Children in Scotland (CELCIS), is a Trustee for Who Cares? Scotland and is directly involved in the world-leading ‘Independent Care Review’. He was also looked after by the state from 11 years of age: he therefore combines lived and professional experience to improve care for others today.
