My name is Debbie. I have worked for Barnardos since March 2016, firstly as family support to vulnerable families through the Transform service and now as your Community Health Development Worker for Havant and Waterlooville. I have over 20 years’ experience as a nursery nurse, working mainly in early years, in schools and with families in the community and in their homes. I have managed a ‘Child Development Project’ which covered the whole of Portsmouth to increase children’s learning and development. I am really enjoying being back in the community with families and have already seen how such simple and accessible provision can make such a big difference to people’s everyday lives, it gives me great satisfaction to support families and children, sharing knowledge and skills to help them succeed.
