Joining during its 10th Anniversary year, Duncan will play a key role in ensuring that the Trust continues to grow its programming across two key themes: Education and Positive Destinations; Football, Health and Wellbeing. Working across Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshire, AFCCT takes a multi-generational approach working with children and young people in 27 schools, providing opportunities for grassroots football and also supporting the wider community, particularly the active ageing group.

Duncan joins AFCCT after almost six years with Clan Cancer Support, latterly as Head of Income Generation and Business Development. Previously, Duncan has also worked with Bibby Offshore as Communications Manager and held senior roles at both Inspire PTL and Befriend a Child.

Liz Bowie, AFCCT Chief Executive said: “I am delighted that Duncan has joined the AFCCT team.

“The need to support our community has never been greater and we rely on the backing of individuals, companies, trusts and foundations to enable our work. Duncan’s experience in the third sector, and his passion for helping the community, places him in good stead to strengthen our existing partnerships and crucially encourage new people and organisations to get on board with AFCCT.

“I am really looking forward to working with Duncan to forge new relationships that will ultimately help us to provide support and opportunity to change lives for the better in our community.”

AFCCT worked with 10,000 people last year and Duncan is eager to play his part in helping the Trust focus on tackling the impacts of child poverty, reducing social isolation and improving mental wellbeing.

Duncan added: “I am both excited and privileged to have the opportunity to drive AFCCT forward as we celebrate our 10th anniversary in 2024.

“I have already been hugely impressed by the range of programmes across the city and shire that we deliver, and the number of individuals from all parts of the North-east community that benefit from the services the Trust provides.

“I am very much looking forward to building on the already well-established partnerships we have in the business community and bringing more corporate supporters on board who share our passion for changing lives for the better.”
