Gordon Edwards

Gordon became an #IWill Ambassador in 2017. Read his social action journey:


“Before moving to Scotland, I first got involved in social action via being part of the Volunteer Police Cadets back in Lancashire. Whilst there, I volunteered my time to support young people in my community as well as adults with severe learning disabilities.

Taking part in social action motivated me each week to get involved, which gave me the opportunities to overcome being socially isolated, and to make new friends.

I am very passionate about the rights of children and young people, particularly in regards to access to adequate mental health services provisions. I have recently campaigned and promoted petitions in order to lobby for better mental health provision for young people across Scotland. This has included taking part in a government mental health strategy review, or lobbying charities and service providers in health and social care on how to improve.”
