My name is Gemma Watson, I am the founder of "The T.H.I.N.K. BIG Project". My experience comes from working in education and social care. It was while working in education and feeling frustrated I started the organisation however, much of my focus went into ensuring that students with complex needs completed their time within education which was often a battle in itself.

 

While the need is greater now than ever before that students stay in education, young people and adults are supported in their  life, I have channelled my experience to provide a range of services that will support building better communities.  

Working with young people my practice starts with me, ensuring I am informed and reflective within all that I do. My time in education has seen me run a range of peer mentoring programmes, managed years groups of 200 students, manage pastoral teams and safeguarding. I am trained in safeguarding to a DSL level while holding a CMI level 7 in leadership coaching and mentoring. My vision is to build better communities, working practices amongst professionals, support systems alongside supporting the community to achieve their potential. 

The T.H.I.N.K. BIG Project was created to empower individuals to think bigger in everything we do. I am very clear in my values and it is time we say enough is enough our young people deserve more. While we want to challenge the educational system we have also extended our vision within the football world. Grey Splashes is created to provide the same empowerment for athletes and the clubs they play for.
