Welcoming New General Manager, Debra Smith

Welcoming New General Manager, Debra Smith

You may have seen our General Manager of 26 years, Susan Wiggans, retired last week. Susan had a wonderful last day, and looks forward to spending more time with family and enjoying her hobbies and interests outside of Branching Out.

Our new General Manager, Debra Smith will start with us in early January, and we are excited to welcome her into the fold.

Debra says:

During my career I have worked in finance, the civil service and NHS but primarily in education focusing on children and young adults with special needs. I spent ten years as a head teacher.

Outside of work I enjoy going to the theatre, travel  and baking . I am looking forward to joining the ‘family’ of Branching Out and being part of this incredible charity.
