Organisation profile

Salvesen Mindroom Centre’s (SMC) mission is to create a world in which no mind is left behind. For over two decades we have worked with and campaigned for children and young people with what has historically been referred to as ‘learning difficulties’.

Through our outreach support services, our training and advocacy projects, and our research partnership with the University of Edinburgh, we are forging a new future for neurodivergent people, ensuring that the right policies and practices are put in place to enable them to flourish and fulfil their potential – wherever they are and whatever they are doing.

Location: Home-based with regular travel to our offices in Edinburgh and to external meetings with funders. We provide a nationwide service and, as such, welcome applications from across Scotland.
