Our Organisation

Our vision is that women, and their families, in the communities we serve are able to achieve their potential, develop their assets and skills and live safe, healthy and prosperous lives.

Our mission is to provide high quality, integrated health and social care services in Cumbria and Lancashire to women and their families.

We continually work to ensure that our services:

Meet Women’s Needs
  1. By championing the value of a gender specific approach in our delivery and as a primary route to achieving better outcomes for those we work with.


  1. By adopting an asset based approach- building aspirations and removing barriers.


  1. By identifying the needs of different communities and adapting services locally to meet these needs.
