The Access Foundation Supports Endometriosis Action Month
This March is Endometriosis Action month, and the Access Foundation is delighted to be supporting our staff sponsored charity by awarding a grant of £9,900 for Endometriosis UK.
Endometriosis UK is the leading patient organisation for those living with Endometriosis, a disease which affects one in 10 women and those assigned female at birth, an estimated 1.5million in the UK.
Every March, people all over the world show their support for everyone affected by Endometriosis. This year the focus is on busting the myths and highlighting the real impact of living with Endometriosis, all too often, those with Endometriosis have their symptoms dismissed.
Endometriosis UK strives to create a world where Endometriosis is recognised and understood, and where the disease does not limit people’s lives. The charity works to raise awareness of the condition and both campaigns and supports research to improve endometriosis treatment and care.
“This grant from the Access Foundation will mean that we can continue to provide support and information for those affected by endometriosis when they need it most.”
The charity also works to provide much needed support for those living with endometriosis, through their Helpline, Web Chat, Online Forum, and local Support Groups.
The grant provided by the Access Foundation will help provide vital emotional support and information to those affected by endometriosis, by keeping the vital Web Chat and Helpline services running in 2023 and will help develop and provide more information on the condition.
Rozie Corbett, Head of Development, Endometriosis UK commented:
“This grant from the Access Foundation will mean that we can continue to provide support and information for those affected by endometriosis when they need it most. Endometriosis can be a painful, lonely condition, and its impact can be felt for life; grants like this help us be there for those who need us, every step of the way.”
