Our Operations and Service Delivery Team

Fran Garland - Chief Operations Officer

Fran has worked within the care sector for over 15 years in various capacities including 1:1 care and senior support work, project co-ordinator and registered care manager and is Care QCF assessor. She has experience of working in both the private and charity sectors and has also volunteered across many different projects. 

Having worked primarily with people with a wide range of different disabilities and additional needs, Fran knew from the moment she found out about Gympanzees that she had to be involved.

Emily Thorn - Executive Assistant to Stephanie Wheen and Fran Garland

Emily has worked in the finance sector for 20 years and took redundancy earlier this year to start a cake making and decorating business from home. “I didn’t really have a plan and cakes were keeping me busy but then I saw the opportunity to get involved with Gympanzees and knew that was what I wanted to do. Although new to the charity sector, I feel passionate about it and am excited to be part of the Gympanzees family.”
