Jan Fishwick OBE
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. She is also a Board member of the Consortium of Voluntary Adoption Agencies advising and influencing government policy on radical reform of adoption services. Jan lives with her husband Ian in a village outside High Wycombe. She enjoys family time with her three adult sons, their partners and three grandsons, walking in the Chilterns, cultivating (and sitting in) the garden and travel. Qualifications: CQSW, MPA. Jan was awarded an OBE in the Queen's Birthday Honours list in 2017.
