Aims to enable Bangladeshi and BAME women in the Bethnal Green area to improve their quality of life, participate fully in society and reach their full potential

Women's Health Sessions

GBMS continued to run women's health sessions twice a month. The sessions provide local women with the opportunity to discuss personal health matter with professionally trained Health Visitors. The regular health sessions have helped a large number of local women to become more knowledgeable and aware of many important health issues, such as Breast Cancer, Cervical Smears, Incontinence, etc. A number of learning materials and videos are used in the sessions.


Health and Information Project (HIP)

We run health promotion workshops to raise awareness and promote healthy living. Workshops focus on heart disease, diabetes, stress and mental health, healthy eating and women’s health including breast screening, cervical smear test, family planning, etc. This service is offered on every 1st and 3rd Wednesday morning of the month between 10.00 AM to 12.00 Noon. The fortnightly session attracts 16 – 20 local Bangladeshi women and other BAME women; aged between 22 to 73 years old.
