Decision summary

A Fitness to Practise Panel that sat on 21 – 24 September 2021 has found allegations proven against Rebecca Spencer, a registered residential childcare worker, of taking and forwarding photographs and confidential information regarding young people without authorisation. It was also found proved that she engaged in a range of abusive acts towards young people and failed to declare she had been dismissed from employment with a company when applying to register with Social Care Wales.

The Panel found Rebecca Spencer’s current fitness to practise was impaired and imposed a Removal Order which means she will be unable to work in a regulated social care role in Wales. Rebecca Spencer’s name will be taken off the Register and placed on the List of Persons Removed.
