Online Menopause Meet-ups

Fortnightly on Thursdays: 1pm online

A virtual meet-up to provide a safe space to talk about menopause. Menopause Meet-ups are for everyone, whether you are experiencing the menopause yourself or supporting someone who is, because menopause matters.

There is no set agenda, just an opportunity to share experiences and support each other over a virtual cuppa.

We hope to see you there!
