Maggie Scott is a former teacher and headteacher who has been a trustee with Peterborough Area Down’s Syndrome Group for ten years and is the secretary for the group. Her main roles in the group are providing activities for drop-in sessions, organising social activities for teenagers, and applying for grants to widen experiences and enable members to reach their full potential. Maggie’s older brother, Ian Mackay, had Down’s Syndrome. Maggie’s inspiration for creating T-21 was seeing members grow up to find there were very few work opportunities for them.
Kim was the original Treasurer in 1998 when the Peterborough branch of the Down’s Syndrome Association (DSA) was opened. In 2002, she was involved in developing the branch into its own registered charity, the Peterborough Area Down’s Syndrome Group. From those small beginnings, a wonderfully supportive charity has flourished, helping many children and adults with Down’s Syndrome and their families in the area, including Kim’s own family of three boys. She returned to the Treasurer role in 2018 when her middle son Sean, who has Down’s Syndrome, became an adult. She looks forward to helping T-21 support our older members to gain important life and work skills.
