For a lot of women in the community or living in more isolated areas, access to information about health care can be a challenge. Throw in a learning disability on top of that and access is further diminished!

If successful in the Head to Head on Tuesday 25th November, funding would be provided by the Big Lottery Fund to enable CAN to run 2 x series of workshops to provide accessible health education programme to both women with and without learning disabilities in the Causeway area.

The Women Wise programme will be mobile (taking place in local community settings) and will cover sessions looking at physical health including cancer awareness and screening, mental health and emotional health as well as issues such as keeping safe on and offline and good decision making. They will bring in experts such as the Family Planning Association, other voluntary organisations and community associations to make sure the information is accessible and sessions are interactive.
