The Minister for Community Safety and Legal Affairs has announced the appointment of Ray Macfarlane as Chair of the Scottish Legal Aid Board (SLAB) and of Marieke Dwarshuis, Tim McKay, Sarah O’Neill, solicitor advocate Paul Reid and Lesley Ward as Board members of SLAB.

SLAB is an Executive Non-Departmental Public Body established under the Legal Aid (Scotland) Act 1986 to manage legal aid in Scotland.

The new Chair, Ray Macfarlane, practised as a solicitor in Glasgow before moving into senior management roles in Scottish Enterprise, where she was Managing Director, and HBOS plc, where she was a Senior Director. Ray is the Chairman of Home Scotland and a Director of Home Group, a Trustee of the National Galleries of Scotland Foundation and of the Hopetoun House Foundation.

She has held several board appointments in the public, private and voluntary sectors including the Scottish Housing Regulator.

“These appointments, alongside the continuing members, give us a strong board that is well placed to steer and support the organisation as we move forward,” said Colin Lancaster, Chief Executive of SLAB.
