John Atkinson

Maintenance Co-ordinator

My name is John Atkinson and I have been the Maintenance Co-ordinator for Grace house
since October 2015. I am originally from Manchester but have lived in the north East for the
last 26 years. I have been married to my wife Deborah who comes from Newcastle for 37
years and have two sons Anthony and Jonny, all of whom have volunteered at grace house
at some time Deborah is a regular.

I am a youth and community worker by profession having worked for Sunderland youth
service for many years and for Barnardo’s young carers in Durham . I have a keen interest in
DIY and Gardening which led me to work for Grace house and I enjoy the mixture of work
and opportunities it gives me
