Welcome to the Menopause Awareness Raising Service website.  On behalf of the NHS and Public Health in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland, Age UK Leicester Shire & Rutland is proudly working to raise awareness of the Menopause.

 Our Vision is:

  • To encourage open conversations about the menopause
  • To sensitively address the taboos associated with the menopause
  • Create a culture where everyone is menopause aware
  • To ensure that individuals navigating through the menopause feel supported and heard

Our Objectives:

The Menopause Awareness Raising Service engage with health and social care professionals, businesses, local employers and neighbourhood community groups and aspire to:

  • Increase awareness and understanding of the menopause
  • Develop and nurture a network of Menopause Champions.
  • Offer support for organisations to become Menopause Friendly
  • Guide individuals to peer support networks for sharing menopause experiences.
  • Advocate for greater menopause awareness through online campaigns, webinars and provision of toolkits

Our Mission:

While the discussion around the menopause is gradually becoming more open, there is still significant work to be done in promoting awareness that the menopause has the potential to be a positive experience. This can be achieved by ensuring individuals have access to evidence based information, thereby empowering them to make informed choices, tailored to their individual needs.
