Stewartry Council of Voluntary Service


Marie started working for SCVS in January 1999 as a Community Economic Development Worker to work with the village halls and community groups. She later became the Manager of welfare to work programme New Deal 18 -24 as SCVS secured a contract with Job Centre Plus to assist young people back into employment. The contract was worth an average of £250, 000 per year and we ran the contract for 10 years and the money that we received was distributed to voluntary groups and latterly to local businesses that provided work placements for the young people involved in the programme. Marie became the manager of SCVS in 2007 and is responsible for managing the staff team and is directly accountable to the Board of Directors. She is responsible for assisting the Board to develop, communicate and implement the organisations vision and overall strategic direction as well as sound financial management.



Jenny Milby - Office AdministratorJenny
Jenny has worked at SCVS for just over 3 years on returning to the area, and says “it’s not until you leave somewhere that you appreciate what you had”, Dumfries & Galloway is a beautiful place to live and work. Working at SCVS has shown her a different view of the Voluntary Sector, as well as the diverse people that use our services, we often say, we never really know who/what is coming through the door next. Her background is in agriculture, having spent the majority of my married life working on the farm with her husband, where they raised their 2 children. She also spent five years working in the Home Care industry as well as looking after her Mother in law until she went into a Residential Care Home. She enjoys swimming and the outdoor life, especially walking their lively Border Collie.
