Endometriosis UK Cumbria - Inform, Share & Support
Reaching and making a difference to women struggling with the effect endometriosis has on their lives. We aim to:
- Provide information – We help women who suffer from endometriosis (and also men whose lives that affects) understand the condition through discussion, expert speakers and publication hand outs.
- Give support – We create a safe, supportive and confidential environment for women with endometriosis to meet and talk with others who share and understand their situation.
- Facilitate gender partnerships – We encourage men and women to work together in this space to end menstrual taboo.
- Partner with businesses - We encourage local companies to sign up to the Endometriosis Friendly Employer Scheme.
- Have fun together!
