Our people

Meet the people who support our work on immigration detention in Scotland.

Meet our SDV management committee:

Meet our director: Kate Alexander

Kate works 21 hours per week and is based at our Glasgow office. She is usually in the office Wednesday to Fridays. She can be contacted by email: director@sdv.org.uk, phone or post.

Meet our volunteer coordinator: Shirley Gillan

Shirley works 21 hours per week and is also based at our Glasgow office. She is usually in the office Mondays and Tuesdays. She can be contacted by email: volunteer-coordinator@sdv.org.uk, phone or post.

Meet our SDV volunteer visitors

We have around 40 volunteer visitors at any one time. They are absolutely vital to the work we do – in fact we couldn’t exist without them. Our volunteer visitors typically make between two to four visits to Dungavel each month to see people in immigration detention.

We recruit new volunteers three times a year. If you’d like to become a volunteer visitor, find out more in our get involved section.
