Sean Reid - Chairperson

Hello to you all, I'm 28 years old and work as a Recruitment Consultant. I only started attending SSS meetings around 2 years ago. I have loved it ever since and made some great friends . My Mum -who is also on the committee- is the only little person I've ever known.  Being a part of SSS and spending time with members has given me a sense of empowerment that I've never quite experienced. I'm really excited about the new committee and the enthusiasm shown by everyone at SSS so far.


Darren Millan - Treasurer


Hi my name is Darren (Daz) Millan. I have been a member of Short Stature Scotland since the charity started. I currently work within Glasgow City Council. In my role as treasurer, I am responsible for the management of the charity accounts, all the fun stuff.
If you have any questions or ideas about fundraising e.g running a marathon or if you want SSS to help you cost out a fun day event then please do not hesitate to get in touch with me through either email or Facebook.

In my spare time, I love to socialise with friends. I am a huge fan of Stand-up comedy, some of my favourites include Bill Hicks - George Carlin - Dave Chapelle - all the greats.
If new to the group, I look forward to meeting you. If a current member, I cannot wait to see you again!
