Originally from Glasgow, Graeme graduated from the School of Community Studies in Edinburgh. He worked in Strathclyde before a move to London to work with homeless young people at the Soho Project.
Following, two years in Canada, where he started a project with aboriginal young people, he returned to London to open the first refuge for children who had run away from home or care. In 1988, he led a campaign that resulted in new provision for homeless young people in the 1989 Children Act.
From 1993, he was Director of Public Affairs for the Children’s Society and also undertook a major research study for the Council of Europe of which he is a Research Fellow. In 1999, he worked with M & S where he was programme manager for the Children’s Promise appeal, which raised £25 million for a consortium of charities. From 2000, he worked as an independent consultant on a number of assignments for the Home Office, the Rough Sleepers Unit at the Department of the Environment, the Social Exclusion Unit in the Cabinet Office and a number of NGOs.
Before being appointed Director in Scotland in July 2008, he was Director of Communications, Policy and Campaigns at Shelter in England, where he was instrumental in raising the charity’s profile with key audiences.
