Zelma Hutchinson Mansfield Centre Manager

Hello, I’m Zelma. I joined the charity in April 2018 as the first full-time Centre Manager at Reach Mansfield.

Most of my career to date has been in nursing. I began as a general nurse before training as a mental health nurse. I have also worked extensively in care support and in the voluntary sector. So coming to Reach Mansfield seemed a natural and exciting progression for me, especially as I am Mansfield born and bred. The role offers a unique opportunity to make a difference to people’s lives and to my own community.

My aspirations for Reach Mansfield are for us to carry on growing bigger and better! I want us to reach more people and make sure we are catering for diverse needs. To achieve this, we have begun to develop new community connections and are working on raising our profile in the town and across Nottinghamshire.

Friends and family are really important to me and, however busy I am, I try to make time to see people. I keep fit with Zumba classes, and walking the dog. Getting some fresh air gives me a chance to clear my thoughts and re-connect with the world.

Please do get in touch if you would like to find out more about Reach Mansfield.
