Jenny Kartupelis MBE author and Director, Faith in Society

Jenny Kartupelis started her career in public relations; in 1998, while still running her own PR business, she was invited by faith leaders to help establish a regional multi faith body and for her work as its director, she was awarded the MBE for services to interfaith relations.

Since 2015, Jenny has given much of her time to research into, and reporting on care of older people, being given access to visit and interview in a wide variety of charitable, private and Local Authority care settings. Her work has resulted in two books about the theory and practice of relational care:

  • Developing a Relational Model of Care for Older People: Creating environments for shared living, Woodward, J and Kartupelis, J, 2018, Jessica Kingsley Publishers, London and Philadelphia
  • Making Relational Care Work for Older People: Exploring innovation and practice in everyday life, 2021, Routledge, London and New York
