Fran volunteered with the German Red Cross before moving to Scotland, alongside her studies, currently works as a support worker at a charity for people on the autism spectrum. She is also involved in the Junior Researcher Project of the European Federation of Psychology Student Association. Besides being the President of the PsychSoc Society, she is involved with various other societies and is a Class Representative.

I, Jacqui, took a two-year break between school and University and worked with several organisations focused on supporting people with various mental and/or physical disabilities. I share the role as Class Representative with Fran and am Vice-President of the Society. I enjoy gaining practical experience relevant to my degree outside University and am currently working with an organisation focusing on autism, learning disabilities and mental health support.
