About this cause
Our objective is to increase awareness of the impact of the menopause on those experiencing it, their friends, colleagues and families. We achieve this by organising pop-up events called Menopause Cafés where men and women, young and old, can gather to eat cake, drink tea and discuss the menopause. In addition, we organise the world’s only Menopause Festival once a year, which takes place over two days and includes creative workshops, seminars, singing and panel discussions with trained experts and experts-by-experience.
How this cause brings people in the community together
We bring members of the community together and foster community spirit. There have been over 200 Menopause Cafés throughout the UK, and feedback shows there is demand for these events. Comments from participants include: "Empowering", "A positive feeling of community", "I left feeling buoyed by the whole experience", "Keep going" and "Friendly crowd, was happy to come alone and meet new people".
