We are so proud to see Jenny fulfil her ambition of setting up her own charity outside of the Trust, the Jenny Wallwork Foundation (JWF). Jenny set up JWF to provide the essential understanding, support and guidance to people of all ages suffering in silence from debilitating mental illnesses such as eating disorders, depression, anxiety, disorders and addictive behaviours.
