Message from Caroline Selkirk

Caroline (or Ms Selkirk) joined BAAF in December and brings to BAAF a wealth of knowledge and experience having held various senior roles in the NHS in Scotland including leading the work on specialist children services.

She says,

“I am very proud to be Chief Executive of such a well-respected organisation which is recognised across the United Kingdom and internationally for the quality of its work and expertise helping to improve the lives of vulnerable children who are fostered or adopted and their families. BAAF is one of the most respected voices in adoption and fostering demonstrated by our campaigning, lobbying, education, advice and family finding services.  I feel privileged to be leading BAAF forward as the charity continues in its innovative work to help vulnerable children and those involved with improving their lives. I am looking forward to meeting, and working together with BAAF’s staff, members and strategic partners from across the regions.”
