VisionPK has an experienced and professional team whom you can trust for the right advice and support.

Kate Charles
Chief Executive

I have worked in Senior Leadership roles in the Voluntary Sector for over 15 years, working with people with disabilities, long-term health conditions and sensory impairment.
I love living in Scotland and walking with my Husband and Labrador Basil and spending time with family and friends

Lidia Dye
Community Development Worker

I enjoy my role developing and supporting social groups for people with a visual impairment in Kinross and Perthshire. These groups are supported with funding from the National Lottery Communities Fund.

I have worked with communities for over 30 years, with groups and individuals of all ages and abilities, I always looks for ways to include volunteers and the community, developing my work around the needs of the people we support.

Thea Samuel
Trainee Vision Rehabilitation Specialist

I’m loving my role as Rehabilitation Specialist in Training at Glasgow Caledonian University. My goal is to empower those with visual impairments to maintain their independence-because everyone deserves to live life on their own terms.

Tina Williamson
Vision Rehabilitation Specialist

I am one of the Vision Rehabilitation Specialists and have been in this position for the last 10 years. I qualified in 2004 and worked for 4 years in the Highlands before moving to Angus where I worked prior to taking up my post at VisionPK.  I love my job – it is so rewarding to see people regaining confidence and coping with sight loss and I feel privileged to play a part in this process.

I now work 2 days a week which gives me more time to spend with my husband Scott who is retired and our dogs. We enjoy walking (luckily) and show our dogs as a hobby, so preparing for and attending dog shows takes up a lot of our time.

Leanne scobie
Operations Support Manager

I am the Operations Support Manager at VisionPK. In my spare time I enjoy being outdoors. I enjoy running a few times a week and do Parkrun every Saturday morning. I also enjoy walking and cycling.
I enjoy socialising with friends and family. I like reading and can often be found with a book in my hand when I am not outdoors.

Debi wallace
Vision Rehabilitation Specialist

I have a varied history of employment but mainly within the Health and Social Care Environment, from being a carer, SVQ Assessor, Hearing Loss Support Worker to my current role as a Vision Rehabilitation Specialist.
I’m currently trying to learn how to play the Ukelele. It’s been a slow process but getting there. I love spending time in my motorhome with my ukelele, travelling to new places and meeting new people.

Wendy Stenberg
Fundraising Manager

I enjoy my role at VisionPK raising funds to ensure that our work continues. I love spending time with my rescue dog Oscar, family and friends or taking locals and tourists out on food tours in Perth.

 

 

 

Morag Caroll
Client Services manager

I spent 31 years working for the NHS, latterly as a MacMillan nurse, and now as Service Manager for VisionPK. I love walking and I am absolutely food obsessed. I love trying out new restaurants or recipes. I also love holidays and socialising with friends and family plus playing with my two rescue kittens Mr Beaujangles and Mr Jinx!

Monika
Volunteer and Activities Coordinator

I joined VisionPK Team in the end of 2022. I work with VisionPK groups in Perth City organising meetings, talks and activities. I also support our great team of volunteers. I like meeting people and listening to stories which is one of the best parts of my job. When not at work, most likely I am either getting my boots covered in mud exploring new places or getting my hands covered in spices or flour exploring new recipes. I always find a good reason to bake.

Eleanor Bath
Receptionist

I am the Receptionist/Admin Assistant for VisionPK. I deal with general enquiries from the public and other professionals, receive referrals, order equipment and more. In my free time I love to read, have days out with family and friends and spend time with my dogs.

Our Board

VisionPK has a knowledgeable and experienced Board overseeing its work. We are also fortunate in having an active and engaged honorary President, in Mrs. Valerie Wares.
