We are a Camden based registered charity, proud to celebrate 30 years of service to women who want to get healthy and change their lives for the better.
Our centre in Carol Street, NW1 is a safe and contemporary space where women come to heal, gather their strength, and to find support and information about health related issues.
The women who use our services face many daily challenges: chronic health issues, mental health problems, learning difficulties, extreme poverty, lack of access to good education and bad housing. They may be single mothers, women who have experienced domestic violence and rape. They may be caring for aging or disabled loved ones. This is what one recent client (and survivor of domestic abuse) said about the centre:
‘This service, I can only describe it as having been given ‘wings’ that lifted me as I slowly tried to learn to live again. I don’t want any women to experience what I did, but if they do, I really hope there is a Women + Health out there for them.’
In 2015, more than 600 clients between them received over 4,500 interventions: counselling, life coaching, body therapies, yoga groups, free GP service, as well as information and signposting.
We have crèche facilities at the centre, making it easier for mums with small children to come for treatments. We visit housebound women in their own homes, offering volunteer befriending and therapies.
We are always looking for new partners and donors to help us grow and provide more home visits, work with vulnerable new mothers and their families, and introduce more women to action learning life-coaching to help them move out of poverty and create better lives for themselves and their families.
We look forward to welcoming you at our events.
