Judith originally trained as a teacher of English and lived in California and France before returning to Glasgow in 1993 after her son Graham was diagnosed with severe autism. 

Judith started the first Autism Support Group in East Renfrewshire and was subsequently invited to join the Board of The East Renfrewshire Carers’ Centre in 2002 – she has been Chair of their Board of Directors since 2009.

Graham has been supported by Cosgrove Care since he was seven years old, he is now 30 and since October 2013, has lived independently with housing support provided by Cosgrove.

Judith joined the Cosgrove board in 2014 and is delighted to be able to give something back to the organisation in this way.

Judith is married and has three other grown up children.
