Stephanie Durrant has joined the Home-Start board after 40 years in education. Having begun her career as a teacher, she taught in a range
of settings, including ten years in a Special School, where she was trained to teach children on the autistic spectrum. In 1999 she joined
Hampshire County Council to set up and manage its Behaviour Support Service with teams working with schools and families across the county, supporting children with behavioural difficulties.
I believe that the early support of families can make a massive difference to a child’s life chances and am delighted to have the opportunity to support the wonderful work of Home-Start, said Stephanie.
Married with two daughters and two grandsons, in her spare time Stephanie enjoys writing for and performing with her local amateur theatre group in Old Alresford.
