Last Thursday I spoke at an event in Unity Works to mark the 30th anniversary of the Well Women Centre.
In 1983, 200 women met in Unity Hall to discuss women’s needs in Wakefield, and a subsequent campaign led to the setting up on the Well Women Centre in 1985. 30 years on, it continues to support women’s health and well-being in Wakefield.
The event also coincided with the launch of the centre’s Positive Impact Project. This will provide vital services to the women in our community who need it most - women with experience of childhood sexual abuse, domestic abuse, disordered eating and self harming behaviours and women who are apart from their children. I wish the centre the best of luck for the next 30 years!
