Jenny Theodule

I first met Jenny decades ago in her role as Mental Health Support Worker.  I remember thinking that Jenny held so much knowledge, not only about the service users she worked with, but she could tell you about their family, community, characteristics, culture and sometimes their aspirations.  As the years progressed when I met Jenny she spoke more about her boys and faith and much later her grand babies.  I remember her laughter, stories she would share about her travel, food, family, culture and so much more.  I called her the Thespian, because she had the ability to captivate the interest of other professionals and people around her.  This was evident in her future teaching and learning in social work.  After completing her social work training Jenny continued to develop her Social Work practice, as a Practice Educator and Assessor for student and newly qualified social workers.  Jenny later went on to lead the very first student hub in Greenwich, in partnership with Greenwich and Goldsmith’s Universities.  As long as I can remember Jenny was always interested in development and put herself forward for initiatives, projects, presentations and panels.  In more recent years Jenny developed expertise and passion in the area of Safeguarding, which she grew and championed on behalf of Greenwich and Oxleas.  Jenny was so meticulous and took great pride in her creation of a staff handbook, which was aimed at supporting professionals through this complex area of work.  Jenny would carefully take new staff through each page of the handbook with great pride.  Jenny’s hard work and passion was later acknowledged when she won an award for this piece of work, which she proudly displayed in the Oxleas Communications Newsletter.  As a Senior Social Worker, Jenny was an Approved Mental Health Professional, Best Interest Assessor, Social Supervisor, Safeguarding Adults Manager, Enquiry Officer and respected and held in high regard by social workers and other professionals.  Jenny has continued to share her knowledge, skills and experiences with and across organisations over the years.  I would like to once again send my condolences and prayers to all Jenny’s family during this distressing and extremely tragic and painful time.
