We're Celebrating: Women's Health Matters Receive TWO Leeds Compassionate City Awards!

Women's Health Matters received two accolades at the Leeds Compassionate City Awards. Rainbow Hearts and Feel Good claimed the title of Health and Wellbeing Project of the Year, while Hala Wadi was recognised as the Unsung Hero of the Year. We felt privileged to be nominated, especially considering the stiff competition from other outstanding Leeds organisations.

Rainbow Hearts is a weekly group for women seeking asylum in Leeds supported by Leeds City Council. At Rainbow Hearts, women of all ages unite to exchange emotional support with others who share similar experiences. We provide health and social support sessions covering topics like self-care, wellbeing, and nutrition. Additionally, creative activities such as therapeutic art, singing, and movement sessions are offered.

"I love coming to Rainbow Hearts, all the different countries and backgrounds, always beside me." - Rainbow Hearts Group Member

Hosted by People in Action and facilitated by Women's Health Matters, Feel Good is our weekly support group focusing on healthy relationships for women with learning disabilities. During each session, participants explore a range of topics, including self-care, cultivating healthy relationships, personal safety, and building confidence.

The awards were accepted at Civic Hall by Project Manager Hannah West and Project Lead Emily Lawson.

"We are delighted to represent our team and connect with peers from various Leeds-based organisations" - Hannah West, Project Manager
