In the years since obtaining her post graduate qualification in Law, Janine has held a number of roles within the social housing sector, specifically focused on reducing anti-social behaviour and criminality in communities, as well as supporting victims and vulnerable people. Between 2008-2013, she managed a large Community Safety team within a Midlands Council, completing a full service review, implementing new policies and leading the team to local and national acclaim. During this time she also assisted the Home Office on a number of initiatives, including delivering national training on community safety, being part of the Home Office ASB Squad and undertaking peer reviews as part of the Ending Gang and Youth Violence work.
In 2013, Janine started her role as Managing Director of a national, not for profit, membership organisation. With approximately 280 members, made up of housing associations, Councils and Police Forces, Janine led a team which worked to share, develop and influence best practice in relation to community safety and ASB.
Janine has also managed a legal and governance department within a housing organisation. This experience means she has a strong understanding of social housing regulation and risk.
When working with her clients, Janine always aims to deliver high quality services that supports and develops effective ASB service provision.
