Chief Executive of Rape Crisis Scotland
Sandy Brindley is Chief Executive of Rape Crisis Scotland and has been involved the Rape Crisis movement in Scotland for more than 20 years, supporting and advocating for survivors of sexual violence. Her work and activism through this time has been heavily influential in driving progress for survivors of rape, sexual assault and abuse in Scotland both in terms of legislative change and improved individual and institutional responses and seeking to address the attitudes and culture that permits this violence.
Sandy sits on multiple strategic forums and taskforces – including those of the Scottish Government – contributing her own expertise and working consistently to ensure that survivors voices are heard by those with the power to effect change.
In 2018 she was awarded an Honorary Doctorate from the University of Glasgow in recognition of her efforts and achievements.
