The future of the CIC

 I have been offering support, guidance and education on menopause locally, to all residents, small businesses, organisations and health care professionals to raise awareness and help early diagnosis.
From January 2024 'Dorset Menopause Support' has become a Community Interest Company, so it can further benefit the communities within Dorset, South Somerset and South Wiltshire.

I would like to develop a Menopause Centre of care in the form of converting one of my outbuildings into a designated space, so I can continue to offer support in a secluded and peaceful setting.
With the opportunity to apply more widely for funding this would also include a bursary fund for women who need to access  Menopause Specialist advice and treatment quickly.

I realise only too well that many women are still struggling to receive the treatment and care they need. The current waiting times after a referral to a Menopause Specialist Clinic on the NHS are between 16 months and 2 years. I find this unacceptable, as some women develop intrusive or suicidal thoughts, so felt the need to act. Developing a Menopause Centre of care will also enable more group meetings to take place, and it would accommodate visits from other therapists providing a fully holistic approach to menopause care.
