Who We Are
Staff, Advisory board, Volunteers & Funders
We Make The Path CIC is a community interest company registered in Scotland. We are organised as a workers' cooperative, with staff members making strategic decisions collectively, with oversight and support from an advisory board. We are also supported by volunteers who carry out specific tasks, and funders who believe in our work.
Elinor (variable pronouns) is the Founder and Director of We Make The Path CIC.
Elinor has a wide-ranging professional background in adult education, community development and youth work, organisational and business development, social research, creating ceremony and ritual, spiritual counselling, complementary therapies and storytelling.
Elinor's own life with chronic illness has led them to bring all of that knowledge, skill and experience to bear on the issue of how chronically ill people can live more fulfilling lives, and make our contribution to the world.
The things the Elinor gets excited about include dogs, plants, queer things, autonomy and consent, crip time, project planning, poetry, head canons, food, right relationship between self and community, including with other-than- and more-than-human beings, disrupting power-over, and creating the world we want now.
