The Women's Health Network identifies and addresses health issues and inequalities affecting women and their families living in Bradford district and Craven, and is supported by the Engaging People grant.

In the past year the Women’s Health Network has thrived, developing an action plan and setting its own direction based on the issues that matter most to members, as well as the issues that the three Bradford district and Craven clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) want to address.

For example, members identified that women can often experience challenges due to a lack of information about menopause. They highlighted the negative impacts on women’s wellbeing and that menopause was often considered a taboo subject.

As a result, the Women’s Health Network is piloting Menopause Cafe's across Bradford to provide a safe space for conversations about menopause. They aim to increase the awareness of the impact of the menopause on those experiencing it, their friends, colleagues and families. The sessions are unstructured, to enable open discussions in a confidential space.

Women’s Health Network members have also been active participants in our Talk Cancer programme, and as a result went on to create a show on BCB Radio about the importance of cancer screening.
