About the service
Barra House is an Autism Specific Service. The building has been designed and constructed in line with principles which underpin such provision for younger adults on the Autistic Spectrum. The service is a small two bed model with ensuite rooms and plenty of communal space.
Meet the team
The manager at Barra House is Debs Fritzl.
Having started her career as a Registered Nurse in 1978. Debs worked in a long stay hospital before moving onto work in the community, supporting individuals with Learning Disabilities and Mental Health issues. She has always worked in a caring, proactive and informed manner, which has enabled her to support those in care to gain independence and achieve their goals.
Working as a Deputy Manager in a day service, she then decided to move the county of Shropshire where she started as a Registered Manager at Highbury House in 2004.
Her education: SRN in Learning Disabilities, Registered managers award 2005, Degree in CIPD human resource management 2014.
She is self-motivated, reliable and committed to providing a quality provision to the people we support. I believe that power and control should be given back to the people who it belongs to…the people we support.
