Jenny Wallwork is a professional badminton player and has represented her country and won major medal across the world including in the Commonwealth games where she secured a silver medal. Throughout her career she has suffered from an eating disorder and so her Foundation represent a very important part of her life and she’s working hard to ensure there’s a step change in the diagnosis, support and awareness of eating disorders.
We are determined to work in partnership with other agencies to raise awareness and develop a better understanding of issues surrounding eating disorders and the wider mental health agenda. The Foundation will also be focussing on promoting positive body image amongst young people across Yorkshire.
Jenny’s long term vision is to provide a welcoming and safe place for young people in Yorkshire to access mental health specialists, support and advocacy so that their lives are no longer dominated by fear of food, or the weight and shape of their bodies.
Director of the Jenny Wallwork Foundation
