Women’s Health Matters reduces health inequalities experienced by women from communities across Leeds.
We work with women who have unequal access to health and support services due to poverty, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation or traumatic personal experience.
Our outreach work allows us to broaden our reach to a wide range of women who have often found it more difficult to work with statutory services.
