LIFE PRESIDENT AND FOUNDER OF SCOTTS PROJECT TRUST (last updated 2020)
Jill is actively involved with Scotts.
In 1990, Jill and Denis Scott had a dream to build a residential home where adults with a learning disability could live and work together.
This project was born out of the experience when their daughter, Henny, was forced to live many miles away due to lack of high quality facilities closer to home.
Their aim was for a caring community of adults, who would benefit from a structured environment designed to help them reach their full potential through learning and leisure.
Therefore, Scotts was founded in 1990, registered as a charity in 1991 and appointed a Board of Trustees.
A three acre site, together with a superb hall in the style of a tithe barn, was donated to Scotts by Honegrove Properties Ltd and fundraising began in earnest.
