Lesley Bennett (Chair)

Lesley originally joined Sam’s Place as an ambassador in 2013, taking on the administration support arm of the organisation as well as IT.

As a retired Associate Headteacher and after 30 years in education (including being a SENDCo) she is passionate about helping to improve young peoples’ life chances and experiences, especially those disadvantaged. She has been Chair since June 2020 and is determined that the way in which Sam’s Place can support young people and their families in terms of life opportunities and social skills, will be a success.
