Jan’s career in social work began in 1975 as Deputy Matron of a 12 bedded children’s home. Here she gained an early understanding of the need for early intervention for families and also encountered children waiting for adoptive families. Both experiences influenced her passion for support to prevent family breakdown as well as ensuring Looked After Children were given the best opportunity to experience the loving environment of a family and to thrive. Jan has a broad experience at senior levels in both Local Authority and Charitable sectors, joining PACT in 2008 as CEO.
