Michelle is CEO of Food Train. Previously a mental health nurse, she joined Food Train in 2002, the first paid employee. She has since grown the Charity across Scotland, extending its services and providing quality support to thousands of older people, tirelessly canvassing for their right to eat well, live well and age well in Scotland. In 2015 she was awarded an MBE for her services to older people and elected a Clore Social Fellow (Older People Specialist Fellow). Michelle’s passion for eradicating inequalities and discrimination against older people has recently seen her lead Scotland’s battle against malnutrition.
This year more than ever has demonstrated why Michelle’s work and drive to improve the lives of older people has been never more needed. Vote for Michelle and you’ll be empowering older people in Scotland to have a stronger voice.
