Janet Spencer


Chief Executive Officer

Janet cuts a colourful figure at Turning Lives Around (TLA) and with all our stakeholders as she drives forward our ambition to achieve more every day for our clients.

Having joined as an operations manager, Janet has developed her career familiarising herself with every element of the business. Initially, professionally interested in adolescent offenders, she quickly recognised the link between good quality accommodation and offending and set about building a network of housing with professional support.

On a quest to improve herself, she has studied Philosophy, has a Master’s Degree in Social Work, a Bachelor of Arts degree, is a Fellow of the Chartered Management Institute and is a chartered manager.

Janet spearheaded LeedsACT, the Academic Collaboration for the Third Sector, which brings together the city’s three universities to benefit community groups. Janet is passionately interested in Civil Society, women returning to work and, in recent years, the lessons and support mature generations can pass on for the future.

A devoted grandmother, Janet is also developing her blog and skills as a speaker.
