Digital transformation to help drive positive change in women’s health

If you’re a regular visitor to this website, you may have noticed things are looking slightly different!

If you haven’t guessed yet, we have a brand-new website and branding across our digital channels, signalling the bold and vibrant direction we are heading towards when it comes to women’s health this year!

Our new website will encourage even more people to join our community and get involved so that together, we can achieve our mission to improve the health of women, girls and babies.

It’s the latest step in our digital transformation journey to change how we deliver accurate and accessible information and showcase our ground-breaking research and trailblazing campaigns to everyone who needs it. Janet Lindsay Wellbeing of Women Chief Executive

How our new website will help make a difference to women’s health

We know how important it is to have good, accurate and accessible information to help people understand the common yet neglected reproductive and gynaecological health challenges that so often face women and girls.

We hope our new website, which is much easier to navigate, will enable more people to get the information they need, whether they are researchers seeking funding, supporters who want to get involved, or women experiencing heavy periods, infertility or a gynaecological cancer.

We’re also making it easier for you to book tickets for our exciting events, whether it’s a health webinar or fundraising challenge, directly on our website. And donations can now be made by bank card, PayPal, Apple Pay and Google Pay.

It’s only through our supporters’ valued donations and fundraising support that we can continue to save and change the lives of women, girls and babies.

Our other priorities for 2023

We are immensely proud of everything we achieved in 2022 and have lots of plans to build on those accomplishments this year.

As well as our new website, we are committed to funding ground-breaking research. We have several projects due to begin and more funding opportunities for researchers throughout the year. Watch out for some exciting announcements coming soon, including new research on endometriosis in partnership with the Scottish Government.

We will continue to reach millions of women through our Menopause Workplace Pledge campaign, and tackle stigma with our Let’s #ChatMenopause campaign to normalise conversations.

And we’re due to start a new project funded by the Department of Health and Social Care to improve menopause awareness in workplaces across Bedfordshire. This will help to reach even more organisations, particularly small to medium sized businesses.

We’re also working on a project with NHS England to improve women’s access to menopause treatment and support within primary care and the community. We want to see how we can help women get the treatment, care and support they may need. Again, we’re looking forward to telling you more about this very soon.

Later in the year, we’ll be launching an exciting new campaign on period problems – an umbrella term for a myriad of gynaecological conditions that can have a devastating impact on women’s lives.

Just like our other campaigns, we will drive meaningful change in the health and wellbeing of women and girls with our community of supporters and partners.

It’s an exciting time in women’s health right now, particularly with England and Scotland committed to tackling the gender health gap through their women’s health strategies. We want to make sure this progress does not falter and plan to do everything we can to 'level up’ women’s health for current and future generations. We hope you will join us on this exciting and important journey.
