Janet worked as a primary school teacher and later became a head teacher of a large school with many social problems before retiring.
Throughout this time she was an active member of her local Mencap group and worked as the general manager and the Play and Activity Respite Scheme leader. After gaining a great insight into the lives of people with a learning disability and their families she became the chair of her local Mencap group and a trustee of Royal Mencap Society and Golden Lane Housing in 2009.
For many years, Janet was a carer for her sister-in-law who was born with Down’s syndrome.
