all of our staff are registered with the Scottish Social Services Council, so you can be assured that your children are being looked after by skilled, trusted and confident workers.
Carla Gallon - Manager
Carla has worked part-time at the Club since 2014, working during term time and holidays. Carla has an HNC in Childcare and Education, an SVQ IV in Children's Care Learning and Development, a BA (Hons) Degree in Childhood Practice, and most recently has completed a PGCE (Merit) Primary Education through the University of Dundee and UHI. Carla also works with the Local Authority as the Childcare Manager for Sutherland area.
Martin MacKenzie - Playworker
Martin works Mondays and Wednesdays at the Club during term-time and various shifts throughout the Puddle Jumpers holiday programme. Martin joined the team at the beginning of 2016. He has completed his SVQ III in Social Care (Children and Young People). Martin has been working with children in both educational and out-of-school care for about four and a half years now, and so brings valuable experience and knowledge to the Club. He very much enjoys seeing what interests children, what inspires and motivates them to learn and develop, and how they view the world. His favourite part of working at Allsorts is the fact that he gets to have fun while he works.
Jade Buchanan - Playworker
Jade works Monday to Thursday term-time and various shifts throughout the Puddle Jumpers holiday programme. Jade joined the team at the beginning of 2016. Jade has completed an apprenticeship to gain her SVQ III in Social Care (Children and Young People). Jade has been an asset to the Club and has blossomed in confidence over these past few years. She has formed positive and trusting relationships with other staff, professionals, children and their families; a vital quality, that supports our ethos and aims as a Club.
Lauren MacKay - Playworker
Lauren worked at the club previously on a part-time basis and now provides occasional relief cover when necessary (for example for holiday / sickness cover). Lauren is fully qualified and has a current PVG. Lauren knows many of our families and service users well, and has positive relationships with them and the other members of the staff team.
We are also currently recruiting for additional relief staff, to build up a pool of team members to deliver our service.
