Tyneside Women’s Health firmly believes that in order to support women to improve and maintain their emotional health and wellbeing, we must work with other services and organisations in the community. We have a long history of joint working and inviting external facilitators to visit groups to talk provide specialist support e.g. around debt or sexual health. We are also committed to providing support to other organisations when our capacity allows.
If you wish to discuss ideas on how your organisation and ours can work together for the benefit of women with mental health issues and vulnerable women in Tyneside, please contact us to share your ideas.
Our Current Partners include:
Wise Steps helps people in Tyne and Wear to transform their lives with funding from the Big Lottery Fund and the European Social Fund. The project provides one to one tailored support to help people take positive steps towards work. Wise Steps is a partnership of local organisations led by the Wise Group.
Working alongside Helmepark Ltd as part of out Impact Management Fund programme, we are reviewing our current outcomes for our interventions to help us highlight the work we do and the difference we make. This is an exciting piece of work and we are looking forward to seeing where it takes us.
