Ian Scott

Ian Scott,
Chair of SNfMH

When he’s not keeping us all in check, Ian is also Treasurer for the Stafford branch of the National Autistic Society. He enjoys a round of golf and is often seen rummaging in the rough looking for small white balls! Ian is a fan of real ale and walking the dog – past-times that he often manages to do together!

After spending many years in corporate senior management, Ian feels that it’s time to give back to the Third Sector. He also has lived experience of anxiety and stress.

Ian’s Top Wellbeing Tip: Talk to your partner and friends, it really works to say some things out loud, knowing there is no judgement.
