Scotland – John


John Dalrymple is the coordinator for Citizen Network Scotland.

For the past forty years John has worked as a social worker in both the statutory and voluntary sector; his work has always been at the edge of innovative, values-driven approaches. Having worked in Glasgow, the Scottish Borders and in Grampian, John  became the Principal Officer for Learning Disabilities in Strathclyde and then led the first phase of the Lennox Castle Hospital closure programme. He later became the joint founder of the North Lanarkshire provider organisation Support for Ordinary Living. In recent years John has taken on the role of Director of Neighbourhood Networks and In Control Scotland and he is now a director of independent consultancy Radical Visions.

Get in touch with John by email or telephone, he’d love to hear from you.
