Women’s Health Matters works with women, their families, and girls across Leeds to make their lives safer.
They work intensively using group work, peer-support and one-to-one, with women, their families, and girls each year in and around Leeds. These women and girls are most at risk, including those:
- experiencing domestic violence
- experiencing sexual and emotional abuse
- with children in care or at risk of being removed
- seeking asylum
- with learning disabilities
- with complex needs or mental health and wellbeing needs.
They also support with parenting and pregnancy choices.
Find out more about the services they offer to women and girls in Leeds on their website. You can self-refer to some of their services and some are by professional referral – see their contact us page for more details and links to referral forms. Groups are free at the point of access and they are often able to help participants with access costs like transport and creche facilities. Activities include arts and crafts, walking, reiki, yoga and breathing exercises, art therapy activities, drop-in, dance, and gentle exercise.
