Meet Our New CEO

We are delighted to welcome Jayne Laidlaw to Bipolar Scotland as our new Chief Executive Officer. Jayne took up the reins at the end of February and has been busy reviewing our performance, financial and administrative processes and reporting structures, while getting to know the team. In her first week she represented Bipolar Scotland at a Parliamentary reception in Holyrood for Change Mental Health.

Jayne has predominantly worked in the third sector for over 30 years, for charities such as NSPCC and Thera Trust but also spent a couple of years reporting to the Mental Welfare Commission as Head of the National Confidential Forum on behalf of the Scottish Government. Her senior leadership experience will be a great asset to Bipolar Scotland as we push forwards with our strategic objectives. Jayne said,

“I’m delighted to offer strategic leadership and direction to such an innovative and dedicated team and I’m looking forward to working alongside the Board, staff and volunteers to grow our income, raise our collective voice and strengthen our influence on behalf of all those affected by bipolar across Scotland. I’m looking forward to getting to know our support groups, our members and their loved ones, to ensure the charity continues to best serve their needs and aspirations for a good life living with Bipolar.”

On her time off Jayne enjoys wild swimming, paddleboarding, walking and learning Spanish. She lives in Renfrewshire with her two sons.

It’s good news to have another strong leader for Bipolar Scotland. I personally have been a member for a long time and have watched it grow into a very much needed voice for Bipolar in Scotland. Look forward to meeting Jayne Laidlaw in the future.
