We’re delighted to be attending Every Woman Festival on Saturday 24th June 2023.
Dee will be joining Love Your Period’s Molly Fenton, and Bethan Walters, a UN Advocate for Menstrual Health, on the main stage at 12:00 to discuss Periods and Endometriosis. See the full schedule here.
Our stand will be in the main house, where Dee will be joined by FTWW volunteers Beth (vote for her petition in the Petition of the Year awards, here!), Rachel and Harriet to answer your questions and provide more information about FTWW and our work.
Click here if you’d like to join our Facebook group for patients who are in Wales or accessing care in Wales. You will need to answer all of the questions to be accepted.
Here are some links to some of the key campaigns, information and reports that FTWW has led or been a part of. Please do use the search bar if you’re looking for anything else – although our website is in the process of being updated, we do have a wealth of information available to you!
