Claire Wheeler - Development Coordinator
Claire joined Bridgend Farmhouse in November 2022 as Development Coordinator with a remit for fundraising, organisational planning and development.
Claire is a qualified primary teacher, a trained facilitator and has over 20 years’ experience working in the voluntary sector with organisations such as Home-Start, Shelter Scotland and the Scottish Parent Teacher Council as well as running a freelance Strategic Planning consultancy. Her teaching roles in South Edinburgh schools have led to new partnerships for Bridgend Farmhouse with primary schools in our area of benefit.
She says: “I love working at Bridgend Farmhouse – the welcome, the commitment to sustainability, the creativity and the desire to create a community where everyone can feel a sense of belonging. It’s an extraordinary place”.
