Sue Cook joined the FJSS Group board as Vice Secretary and her background in the justice system is very relevant to the work we do. She has extensive governance and strategy experience having held several executive and non-executive board-level positions in public, private and third-sector organisations. 

Born and raised in Canada, Sue obtained her master’s degree in computing science from the University of Aberdeen and then ran her own business (which was voted one of the top ten multimedia organisations in Scotland) for more than ten years. Sue was the regional chair for the Prince’s Trust for 15 years helping hundreds of young people start and succeed in their businesses across Scotland. Sue served on the Board of West Lothian College for 14 years holding the position of vice chair, chair of learning and teaching, and then chair of audit for four years. 

Sue has been a Justice of the Peace for Lothian and Borders sheriffdom for the last twenty years, and chairs two charities namely, “The Scheme” which tackles the drug death crisis in Scotland, and “Courage Together” which helps people from the BAME community who have no family support. In 2010 Sue led a team to cycle from West Lothian to Paris raising over £35,000 for charity. Sue lives in West Lothian with her husband and has twin boys and a daughter.
