Registered Manager

We are pleased to announce, Sara Simmonds is now our registered Residential Manager.

Sara describes herself as a “leader but still a learner” and has dedicated her time at Living Springs in setting high standards for our staff in enthusiasm, resilience and professionalism. Sara has tirelessly worked towards reaching best practice at Living Springs and has many more exciting ideas to implement for the future.

Sara began working with us in April 2014 as a Family Assessment Worker. Sara has since then undertaken further qualifications and following an OFSTED interview became Living Springs registered Residential Manager on 27th April 2020 and we are so happy to have her.

Sara worked alongside our Founder, Jane Chapman for many years and when Sara graduated, Jane was there to celebrate the occasion.

Jane offered these words of support and encouragement to Sara:

“I am delighted that Sara is the new Residential Manager. I believe that I am leaving the Centre in a very safe pair of hands. Sara is extremely knowledgeable and has extensive experience in the field of children and families. She has all the right skills and abilities required to lead the staff team into the next phase of the journey. Therefore, I have no doubt at all that she will more than adequately meet the many challenges and requirements of this important role.”
