Amy Woodhouse

Amy was born and raised in Edinburgh. She is currently Chief Executive of Parenting across Scotland, a national network of charities working to ensure that parents and carers are valued and supported to give their children the best possible start in life.

Prior to this role, she was Head of Policy, Projects and Participation for Children in Scotland, a position she held for 8 years. Earlier in her career she worked as a researcher in the mental health sector and has a particular interest in how music, and the arts more widely, can be used to promote mental health and well-being.

In 2023 Amy became a Churchill Fellow. Her fellowship focused on national approaches to improving children and young peoples’ access to hobbies, learning from the experiences of Finland and Iceland. She firmly believes that hobbies are good for us all and should be a core part of each and every childhood.
