Endometriosis devastates the lives of women and their families. We help them take back control.
One in ten women endure unrelenting pain that affects every aspect of their lives each day. That’s over 1.5 million women who desperately need support and information to help them understand this chronic condition.
We’re here to provide vital support services, reliable information and a community for those affected by endometriosis.
We’re a very small organisation, striving for big results.
We work to improve the lives of people affected by endometriosis and to decrease the impact it has on those with the condition and their families and friends.
We are a source of information and support
Endometriosis UK provides free, reliable information about endometriosis on our website, and through our printed anddownload materials. Our Support Network provides vital, emotional support and information to those who have endometriosis through our support groups and helpline, enabling them to understand their disease and take control of their condition. Visit our Get Support pages.
We raise awareness
With the help of our volunteers, we raise awareness of endometriosis, and the issues that affect people living with it, among healthcare professionals, people with endometriosis and their families and colleagues, the public and the media. By developing clear policies, Endometriosis UK aims to influence national governments and healthcare providers to achieve the standards of care and treatment that those with endometriosis deserve. Learn more about how you can Get Involved.
We’re a membership organisation
This means that people with endometriosis – or those who are affected by it – are a core part of the work we do. They direct what we do through our board of trustees, deliver our support services and help define and refine our campaigns and policies. Our members have helped to make our charity the UK’s leading provider of support and information on endometriosis. Find out how you can Become a Member.
We’re involved in research
We are involved with a number of research projects, helping to shape, deliver and disseminate these and we hope to develop this area. Regular surveys and polls with our members and other stakeholders also contribute to our research activities. We’re also working with PhD research to produce quarterly endometriosis research reviews.
