Director of ENABLE Works Appointed to SCVO Board of Trustees

ENABLE Works Director Ashley Ryan has been appointed to the Board of The Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations (SCVO).

SCVO is the national membership organisation for the voluntary sector with a mission to promote and develop a confident and sustainable voluntary sector in Scotland.

Ashley Ryan was named a new Trustee at SCVO’s AGM, held on Tuesday 6 December.

ENABLE Group CEO Theresa Shearer, who served on the Board of Trustees at SCVO for six years and has just completed her final term as Vice Convenor this month, warmly congratulated Ashley on her appointment.

Theresa said:

I have worked with Ashley for a number of years, and I have every confidence that her enthusiasm and talent will be of benefit to SCVO. I have always believed that charities can do more – both for the people we work for and the communities we serve – when we share knowledge and resources. I know Ashley will be a great asset to the Board at SCVO while she continues to build on the success of ENABLE Works.


Ashley has worked with ENABLE for more than a decade and was appointed earlier this year as the Director of ENABLE Works, which is one of Scotland’s leading supported employment organisations.  ENABLE Works supports more than 4,500 people each year to access the right education, skills, training and employment opportunities within a specialist field of their choosing, elevating their educational and career aspirations, and last year supported 567 people to gain and sustain paid employment.

Director Ashley Ryan added:

I’m looking forward to getting started and championing the work of SCVO. The work of the organisation is fundamental to our sector, and I want to help shape what that future looks like. This is a crucial time in our sector’s future as we navigate through the pandemic and work towards a positive future for all those we represent.
