We are delighted to introduce you to the Old Vicarage's amazing management team.

Gary Devlin

Registered Manager

My name is Gary Devlin and I am the Registered Manager at The Old Vicarage. 


I began working in the learning disabilities sector in 1997. I was first registered as a home manager in 1999 and became Operations Manager for Lynbrook Homes (Newbury) in 2002. 


In 2004 I returned to home management at The Old Vicarage with the previous owners of the home, Support Partners. I was seconded part time to manage a business transition in 2008, retaining the registration at The Old Vicarage whilst assisting the estabishment of a home dedicated to care for older people and self direct budgets. On completion I took up my full time role at The Old Vicarage. 


I hold an NVQ4 Registered Managers Award and an NVQ assessors award.  


At The Old Vicarage we have an enthusiastic and passionate staff team of 31 individuals. 


All undergo common induction training following recruitment, and then undertake an NVQ qualification appropriate to their needs.
