Gavin Woods

Registered Manager, Bournemouth

I have worked for over 20 years in the Child Care Sector, for the Youth Service, the Church of England and also within Independent Schools and Children's Homes. During this time, I have taken young people on some exciting trips, including cycling in Holland and canoeing in Scotland.  I have been a Registered Manager for around 7 years and joined the Beaufort Group during the summer of 2019.  My secret shame, other than supporting Southampton football club, is that I am an avid collector of graphic novels.  Although criticised for my sense of humour by the young people I care for, it didn't stop me winning the World Sarcasm Championship in Latvia in 1998.
