In this section of the website you can meet some of the staff team who work with Partners for Inclusion and hear a little bit about them and what motivates them within their individual roles.

Sharon McReynolds (Receptionist/Administrator.)

Sharon and joined Partners in February 2014 and says from day one she has felt so welcome, and my colleagues have been very patient while I am learning the job

Sharon had worked in a GP Surgery for the last 10 years.

Sharon has enjoyed getting to know the people we support when they pop in now and then to visit.

Sharon’s weekends are spent with my family, especially my 2 grandchildren who keep me on my toes and loves up cycling furniture, DIY, and gardening (not that we get the weather in Scotland)

Michael O’Neill (Senior Service Leader)

I joined Partners for Inclusion as Senior Development leader in October 2022.

It was an honour to join PFI. One of the things that first attracted me was the unique way the organisation builds support around the person and the values that underpin the support is inspiring.

I have worked in Health and Social Care for 29 years. Throughout this time, I have worked in various settings with a wide range of people: I mainly worked for the Talbot Association working in homelessness services. However I have also supported school age children at the National Centre for Young People with Epilepsy in London and adults with a learning disability at L’Arche which is a Voluntary organisation in Canada, as well as adults with a sensory impairment with SENSE Scotland, and elderly patients within the NHS. 

Dale Anderson (Senior Service Leader)

I have worked for Partners for Inclusion since February 2001, one of the good things about working here is the people we support who have been very patient with me while I learned “the job”.

Zoe MacDonald (Senior Service Leader)

Having worked in this sector for nearly 20 years, I have learned so much through my time here. I love the fact that people’s expectations have grown and they know only too well what they want, need and deserve from their support.  We are all equal and should always remind ourselves of this fact.

Janine Hunt - Partners for Inclusion CEO

Janine Hunt (CEO)

Janine has a strong track record as an innovative leader with a varied skills base built running equality projects and advocacy on disability rights programmes early on in her career. 

She has extensive senior-level CEO and Director experience within the not-for-profit and the public sectors. Janine joins the Partners for Inclusion Group as CEO.

She aspires to follow the example of the retiring CEO, Pete Richmond, seeing each person as an individual and given the space to grow. 

She has worked across Scotland and the UK in values-driven environments including The Disability Rights Commission, Scottish Refugee Council, Big Lottery Fund, Creative Scotland, Scottish Government (The Promise), and with Scotland Excel. She relishes roles where no two days are ever the same, forming intuitive responses swiftly to emerging challenges. 

Previous experience within The Scottish Government in constitutional reform added to her experience of national policy on social / childcare and human rights. She was a member of the Scottish Refugee Council Board from 2015 to 2020 and has been a board member of The Mungo Foundation since 2020. Janine, a proud Mancunian, has lived in Glasgow since 2005. She enjoys spending time with friends, yoga, and walking, particularly along the local Ayrshire Coast.

Gamal Haddou (Director of Finance & IT)

Gamal joined PFI in Dec 2023 and leads the finance and information technology functions.

He co-ordinates and monitors the financial health, business planning, Board and committee reporting and providing business support to colleagues in the Senior Management Team. 

As a care and support provider there are many challenges in the sector as well as an increasing demand for PFI services.

Together as a finance team we forecast and plan ahead plus ensure the Trustees, stakeholders and staff receive high quality reports, policies and information to enable PFI to grow and provide first class support services.

Gamal has many years experience in housing Association finance and across the not for profit and commercial sectors, most at a senior level, is a fully qualified Accountant and holds an honours degree from the University of Dundee.

Gamal also holds an ILM Level 9 certificate in Leadership and Management and Chairs the staffing sub-committee for a Glasgow based housing association.

In his spare time he enjoys tennis and some outdoor life, having managed to cycle the West Highland Way and to Corrour and is known for his liking of fresh coffee which is handy since the office is minutes away from Kilmarnock town centre.

Michele Munro (Director of Support Services)

I have been working with the Partners for Inclusion Group since May 2011. In this time I have been both Service Leader and Senior Service Leader in Just Connections and then was successful in being appointed as Director in September 2014.

Prior to joining The PFI Group I had worked with C-Change Scotland for over 8 years as a Service Leader. I then moved location and worked in a residential service in the North East of England for 2 years. The experience in England was very interesting and it made me realise that I wanted to work in the way I had previously; in a very focussed and person centred way hence me joining PFI.

I come from a nursing background having spent a number of years living in the Scottish Borders where I undertook my nurse training. Since qualifying I have worked for various third sector organisations supporting adults with learning disabilities and mental health issues.

When not working I spend my time with family and friends, reading, doing the odd bit of baking and trying to learn the banjo. I also have a little Bichon Frise called Huxley (named after Aldous Huxley). The day I bought Huxley I had two names in mind; thankfully the Sheryl Crow song “Run Baby Run” kept repeating in my head with the line “the day Aldous Huxley died” or he would have been Bailey!
