Lancashire Women

Lancashire Women is a leading charity for women and girls in Lancashire with over 8500 women accessing their services over the past year and a team of active volunteers supporting delivery of their services. Their vision is where all women and girls in Lancashire are valued and treated as equals. Lancashire Women empower women and girls to be able to transform their lives by bringing them together to: find their voice, share experiences and understanding, develop their knowledge and skills and challenge stereotypes and misconceptions about them… so that they can have choices in becoming the individuals they want to be.

Through their network of female only centres, located across the county, they can help Lancashire Women:

  • Improve mental health and emotional wellbeing
  • Get advice on managing money, benefits and debt
  • Improve skills, knowledge and gain employment
  • Meet others and build friendships
  • Live safer, happier and more positive lives

Lancashire Women provide a holistic approach of: mental health and wellbeing support, advice on managing money, benefits and debt, help improving skills, knowledge and gaining employment opportunities within happier communities.

Other organisations we are supporting

Mummy’s Star is the only charity in the UK and Ireland who specifically support women and families where Mum is diagnosed with cancer during pregnancy or within a year of a birth.

Mummy’s Star is the only charity in the UK and Ireland who specifically support women and families where Mum is diagnosed with cancer during pregnancy or within a year of a birth.

The news of a pregnancy or a recent birth is an exciting time for all prospective and existing parents. However, it can be cruelly interrupted by the news of a cancer diagnosis and the worry that this brings to Mum, family and friends. Worse still, this could have also led to the loss of a pregnancy or baby.

A cancer diagnosis is difficult at any time, the added pressures of pregnancy, looking after a small baby or grieving loss can be scary and isolating.

Every day 2 women are diagnosed with cancer during pregnancy or shortly after birth.

That’s where Mummy’s Star comes in.

Mummy’s Star believes that no one should have to go through this alone. They help families to meet others in a similar position, offer small grants to relieve some financial burden, give support to partners and the wider family, promote awareness and support research.

Their dedicated team ensure women and their families have tailored support that is sensitive and specific to their individual needs.

They’d love to see a day when cancer and pregnancy are not words used together, but they are there for mums EVERYDAY and working hard to help SUPPORT every family through this extremely traumatic situation. Working directly with families to get support that is as unique as they are.
