Silke Mehrgott

Service Delivery and Improvement Manager, Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations (SCVO)

About this speaker

Since June 2021 Silke has been managing the Connecting Scotland programme at SCVO, in partnership with Scottish Government. The programme was created in response to the Covid-19 emergency and has provided a lifeline to digitally excluded people during the pandemic. In just over two years, Connecting Scotland has managed to get over 61,000 households online across Scotland. This was achieved by working closely with voluntary sector organisations and local authorities to support Scotland's most vulnerable citizens with free devices, internet access and support.

Previously, Silke was Chief Operations Officer at community development charity The ClementJames Centre, a local project punching above its weight to combat social and economic disadvantage in its West-London community.
