Jenny has been on the board of BHCI since 1989 and has been an active contributor to end of life care since she completed her Certificate in Palliative Care Studies. She has been involved during that time in the training of the Hospice volunteers and has also conducted training for Health professionals and facilitated workshops and seminars for community members.
Coming from a Counselling background, Jenny has specialised in work with the dying and in grief, loss and bereavement. She has worked as director of South West Counselling and has had her own counselling practice. Jenny has a real commitment to the principle of compassionate palliative care and of the inclusion of volunteers in clinical care at the end of life as it ensures that those receiving care experience a feeling of community inclusion.
