Kerry Gaughran

Kerry has had a love for singing and acting for as long as she can remember. Kerry spent many years dancing, becoming proficient in tap, modern, ballet, freestyle and theatre-craft. Performing and dancing are in her blood. Having spent time performing in England and the US, Kerry values the performing arts and the positive effect it has on young people. Kerry has trained as a Social Worker and worked closely with fostering agencies and youth groups. As a result she is highly organised and efficient and loves to be with young people. She works hard to keep Little Voices West Kent organised and ensure parents and pupils are being looked after and well-informed.

Kerry is thrilled to be the principal of the team at Little Voices West Kent. She said: “Everyone deserves to feel valued and have a chance to recognise their potential. Little Voices does that. I’m excited to lead an organisation that places parents and their children at the heart of its principles. You will not regret the time your child invests with Little Voices West Kent.”
