The former civil servant Maureen McGinn will be the next chair of the Big Lottery Fund’s Scotland Committee, the Cabinet Office announced yesterday.

McGinn will take up the post on 1 December when Alison Magee stands down after five years in the role. The committee is responsible for allocating approximately £327.5m of Big Lottery funding in Scotland until 2015.

McGinn, who has been appointed for four years, has been a member of the committee since 2007 and acts as an adviser on social justice for the grant-making organisation the Paul Hamlyn Foundation. She is also a member of the steering group of the Partnership Drugs Initiative of Lloyds TSB Foundation for Scotland, and previously ran the Laidlaw Youth Trust.

As Scotland Committee chair, McGinn will also sit on the UK board of the Big Lottery Fund.
