Bobby Jones (they/them)Southern Scotland
Bobby has been working in Scotland for 20 years, supporting a diverse range of individuals, organisations, families and communities to achieve positive change.
Initially working as an outdoor instructor, Bobby developed an interest in the dynamic between 'outdoors and indoors' and how this can stimulate learning and growth. They were fortunate enough to have opportunities to develop these ideas further through employment in a community outdoor project in Glasgow and as a facilitator of leadership programmes in the Highlands.
Bobby has always sought to enhance their experience and knowledge of working with people. They are a qualified social worker and have worked for a range of organisations in the voluntary and statutory sectors, involving direct work with young people, adults, families and community groups as well as training, development and support for staff. Bobby seeks creative and experiential ways to support people to grow their awareness of themselves and the unique worth and potential that they have.
Bobby is fascinated by change processes and brings a blend of research knowledge and practical experience to their work. Considered and reflective, they seek to ensure that the process of learning and change is organic and able to flex with individual needs.
In their spare time, you are most likely to find Bobby on a bike, in the sea, up a hill with their spaniel Ernie, or at home in Edinburgh 'quality testing' their partner's baking.
