WOMENS HEALTH MATTERS

WHM works with women across Leeds on health related projects. We share in the diversity of our communities and work particularly with women who do not usually access health services.

Founded 1987

  • Mission statement

    WHM works with women across Leeds so that they can take control of their lives and their health.
    We listen to women's concerns and recognise that they are experts about their own health.
    We take an holistic approach to health - it concerns all aspects of well-being.
    We prioritise work with women in disadvantaged areas and women who experience additional disadvantage because of age, race, class, disability or sexual orientation.

    WHM uses community development methods because working in this way improves the health and well-being of women, their families and the wider community and contributes to reducing inequaliites.

    Run by women for women!

    With all kinds of women, for all kinds of health!
