Louise Scott

Louise has 20 years of hands-on experience in co-operative business. She was a founder of workers’ co-operative media co-op.

She’s part of the Worker Co-op Federation, Co-Tech tech & digital co-ops network, the Scottish Parliament Cross-Party Group, facilitates Glasgow’s co-op meet-up group, represents co-ops on The Social Enterprise Code group and is a former co-op rep on the Board of Social Enterprise Scotland.

She got her MBA (Open University) while working at the European Commission and then worked with European and international membership organisations in Brussels. Back in the UK she worked with partnerships of employers, trade associations and trade unions on employment and sector skills.

Louise was on the Glasgow Children’s Panel for many years, has been a befriender and mentor to young care-experienced people; a Glagay! Board member; volunteer English-language teacher with asylum seekers; and a Room for Refugees host.

When not co-operating or volunteering, Louise is on her bike, at her allotment, or foraging and wild camping in the hills.
