Jenette Sefton

Jenette who sadly died suddenly at the end of 2018, was responsible for setting up and managing the Centre’s website.  Jenette made a huge contribution to the development of the Centre through her creative work on the website and latterly the VBP library.

Jenette’s interest in values-based practice resulted from developing teaching and learning materials for the Philosophy and Ethics of Mental Health (PEMH) Master’s Degree course at the University of Warwick where she was Co-Course Director. She later went on to run her own design and marketing business.
