Roxburgh joined as a volunteer in 2012 a year after the charity was formed, to support children and families with eczema, having lived wiwth the condition since birth.

He later joined the charity’s staff as head of services as well as interim CEO.

She also spent two years working at Prostate Scotland.

“I’m thrilled to be back at Eczema Outreach Support, it feels like returning home and I can’t wait to catch up with members, supporters and staff,” she said.

“It’s going to be a big step up and challenge but I’m excited to get started and hit the ground running. I have lots of new ideas and will also take forward many of our current plans.”

She added: “I can’t remember not having eczema, so I completely understand and empathise with our members and what they are going through.

“I know how difficult it can be to access dermatology specialists and the emotional, as well as physical, pain the condition can cause the entire family.

“I am so thrilled to be back at such a vibrant, energetic charity and can’t wait to continue to make a real difference to the families EOS supports.”
