Alliance Management Team Biographies

Flora Henderson

Flora is an experienced leader with more than 15 years’ experience managing complex programmes in Asia, Africa and the UK. Good outcomes relied on trusted partnerships with stakeholders ranging from local village groups to host country institutions and the international organisations and governments who funded the work. After settling in Scotland seven years ago, Flora joined Thistle Foundation; a health and wellbeing organisation known for pioneering person centred approaches in a range of health and social care settings. As Head of Development, she brought new projects to life and latterly, integrated fundraising and communications into her role. In 2014, she was seconded to NHS Lothian to coordinate the Lothian House of Care Collaboration, an initiative designed to help more people experience person centred care by building on good practice and existing resources.
