OUR MANAGEMENT TEAM
Ashley is our founder and CEO. A product of the post-traumatic growth she advocates so strongly for, her establishment of the charity Thriving Survivors in 2016 has created safe, trauma-informed spaces to support survivors in their path to resilience and recovery, regardless of their age, gender, background, or circumstance.
Her priority is promoting inclusivity and choice through survivor networks, with her Survivors’ Voices channel providing the basis for her advocacy work in ensuring survivors are heard.
This has most recently manifested in the Survivors’ Voices consultation which Ashley spearheaded, paving the way for Thriving Survivors to become a leading national hub for Restorative Justice services, which currently exist nowhere else in the UK. In particular, Ashley is now taking the lead on developing a specialist Restorative Justice hub in cases of sexual harm, an area that has seen an increasing demand for Restorative Justice services in Scotland.
