Every woman will go through the menopause and each experience will be different. Hands Inc’s flagship menopause programme creates a safe platform where women can explore and share their experiences or curiosity about the menopause. We are at the forefront of delivering services that challenge the stigma and taboo associated with this transitional stage of women’s lives. The programme has a practical approach in style and delivery and is inclusive of all women. Our menopause programme seeks to give women a voice, improve their wellbeing and empower them to understand their choices for managing a healthy transition through the menopause.
We also seek to influence commissioners and stakeholders that design services for women and are carrying out research to help advocate the need for services that meets women’s needs. We are working in partnership with the Gynaecology leads at City & Hackney Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and Homerton Hospital in the development of this programme. As well as with other partners who bring their exceptional knowledge and expertise in this area of work.
We deliver workshops to educate women, as well as run awareness events to raise the debate and help inform health professionals and other service providers about the menopause. We will also be training and supporting women to set up their own Peer Support Group.
The job will involve programme admin, recruitment, working with women to create a sustainable Peer Support Group, programme monitoring, research and development, outreach work, working with a range of stakeholders and organising awareness events. Training and supervision will be part of the role.
