Women's Health Matters (updated 23/06/2014)

The Women's Health Matters workshop on 29th May received very positive feedback from our tenants who suggested "More workshops like these!"

Group discussion focused on what makes and supports a healthy life, while presentations included health resources in your local library and the importance of breast screening for cancer.

"In appreciation I say Women's Housing have taken into consideration the overall wellbeing of tenants"

There was also much discussion about the many ways tenants can be involved in Women's Housing Company to share ideas, stories and provide support to one another. 

"It's been a great opportunity to share information and I am thankful to all the workers"

A big thank you to all the tenants who participated.  We look forward to seeing you again at another Women's Housing Company event.
