Debbie Ball is one of those people who makes you think “how does she do it?”

If Deb thinks she can help, she will. She has almost endless energy and motivation to support people and develop the community.

We first met Deb when she decided to train as a community researcher, to find out what people think of Hanley Park. She came on a course with Staffordshire University.

Many years on, Deb is now one of the 1000 Lives Community Connectors, part of the team who lead the 1000 Lives Network.

Deb was willing to share her story at the first 1000 Lives Network event. We hope you enjoy it.
