Claire Knox Manager and Director at Wild Things
Claire has many years’ experience working with children, families and community projects. Claire has worked as a youth worker and Project Manager where she was able to offer a wide range of children’s services including After School Club services, youth groups, holiday schemes, outdoor activities and special needs groups.
She has since focussed on her work with children and families in the outdoors and trained as a Level 3 Forest School Leader in 2015. She enjoys combining her experience of working with children alongside her love of the outdoors and hopes that Wild Things Scotland will help many more families, children and individuals to connect with their local, natural environment in a positive way helping to improve health and well being.
Claire is excited to be taking on the role as Manager of Wild Things and looks forward to bringing lots of exciting new services and activities your way in the future!
