Gemma Wyatt

Registered Manager, Bournemouth

I am the Registered Manager at New Park , having worked at Beaufort Care Group since 2015, firstly as a Residential Childcare Practioner and then a Practice Manager. I hold the Level 5 Diploma in Leadership for Health & Social Care & Children and Young People’s Services Children and Young People’s Residential Management.

The highlights in my career have been . In 2008, I went to Romania with a charity, The Libra Foundation to work with orphaned children and poor families that could not afford to send their children to school and felt it was a waste of time. The charity encouraged the children to go to school by holding activities such as arts and crafts, played games, singing and playing music. Over the two weeks the children worked towards a performance of the lion king which they later performed to their town mayor and families.        

In April 2018, I took two high risk YP’s to Disney Land Paris, for 5 days. This was a momentous achievement for the YP’s who both displayed challenging behaviours. The trip took a lot of preparation and work with the young people and the numerous professionals involved. I am very proud I was able to achieve this outcome for the young people; giving them the experience of going away for the first time aboard. The trip was amazing for all involved and personally, a highlight in my career to first hand see how my hard work had given the young people a chance to experience a holiday and make memories that will last forever.
