Jan joined Revitalise from Mencap, bringing decades of experience with her from her time as Director of Personal Support, and then as CEO. She is also Chair of the charity Access Your Right to Care, working to secure access to justice for people with social care needs. Jan started working with disabled people at the age of 15 when she volunteered at St Laurence’s Hospital, and loved it. She saw Mencap change beyond recognition over a period of 36 years, and felt privileged to sit with families and listen to their stories, giving her heart and soul to make the world a better place for people with disabilities. Jan is married, lives in North London and has six children and two dogs. Her ideal holiday is an escape to rural Cornwall, where she can spend time with family and escape the hustle and bustle.
