Debbie Watkins Support Manager

What do you do at If U Care Share?
Support Manager

Why did you join If U Care Share?
Since first meeting Shirley, Dean and family in 2010, after raising funds to donate in memory of my brother Steven, whom we sadly lost to suicide, I was drawn to the charity and the amazing work the Smith family had started in memory of Daniel. Both my sister Michelle and I became trustees from a family perspective, and was so proud to see the Foundation continue to grow. In 2017 when the opportunity arose, I was honoured to receive a Support Worker role, and now I am one of the support managers. Every day the Foundation gives me the opportunity to thrive and I truly believe I have found my vocation. It is an honour to support each and every person through their own personal journey, and to be a part of an amazing team, although we all wish, it’s a role we didn’t have to fulfil.

If you could travel to anywhere in the world, where would you go and why?
I would love to do a world cruise!, one for when I retire maybe? Only 15 years to go then.

What are some things that make you happy?
Spending quality time with children, family and friends, seeing them smile and thrive. Grand-dog Archie. Planning holidays, booking holidays, going on holidays, and watching Gogglebox, although not whilst on holiday!

What is your favourite biscuit and why?
Tough one as I try not to eat them! Granola cookies are just yummy though.

Anything else you would like to share with the world?
I’m double jointed in nearly every joint and I once had a 1-1 chat with Andrew Ridgeley from Wham whilst George Micheal was in the loo!
