Picture of Ann McGuinness

Ann is a passionate environmental campaigner with equality and the empowerment of others as her motivation. Having lived experience of both poverty and disability, she has a breadth and depth of knowledge of some complex topics often under-represented in our national discourse. She is a committed feminist and active in local and national politics, having worked with others across the political spectrum to train, motivate and empower our women politicians of the present and future. She sits as Co-Convener of the Scottish Green Party Women's Network. Above all, she is committed to getting things done rather than just talking!

In her home home-life she home-educates her children (16 and 9), enjoying learning with them every day. She has renovated 2 homes and has hands-on building experience, never afraid to roll up her sleeves and get dirty. She turned her oversized garden into a bio-diverse mini-holding, where she grows fruit and veg, and where she takes care of 8 rescue hens and a very cheeky cockerel. She is also a part-time OU student, studying social psychology.
