Gaynor joined the team at the One Stop Shop in October as a Community Advisor. Gaynor has an autistic son who is 26 and has worked for a number of autism charities and organisations, where she has provided support, information and training.
Gaynor moved to Scotland in February 2023 and is looking forward to exploring more of this beautiful country.
I joined the Fife One Stop Shop in Spring 2022. Since studying for a psychology degree, I have worked within a range of roles supporting autistic and/or people with learning disabilities, as well as families. Most recently, I was a development worker supporting Citizen Advocacy partnerships.
I am passionate about ensuring that autistic people have a voice within their lives, as well as supporting people to become better connected within their local communities.
