This will offer offer more opportunities for fantastic integration through a shared interest or area of expertise!

Ian from Big Noise will also be starting soon. Date to be confirmed.
Janet McLauchlin, Music Therapist from Nordoff Robbins, is timetabled within OH.
Some mainstream staff are again timetabled with various groups of OH YP. This includes staff from Languages teaching Spanish, Design and Engineering, Scottish Studies, Social Geography and Drama. Great excitement and opportunities for all!
