We marked International Women’s Day with a discussion about how we’d marked the day.

Kyra Bond attended the meeting to give an overview of the work of our nominated charity for 2021, Womankind.

Womankind supports women in the Bristol area with professional counselling, group psychotherapy, befriending and a helpline service. Womankind is an established charity run by women for women.

Womankind help hundreds of women every year to improve their mental health and well-being so they can experience a better quality of life.

They recognise that the roots of our difficulties are often linked to personal life histories. They also recognise that the social and political environment in which we live affects our mental health.

It’s not always easy to ask for help but they would encourage you to not suffer in silence as talking to someone about your problems and how you feel can really help.

Womankind will work with you to understand your situation and can help you think things through so you get the support you need.
