our charitable programmes all play a part in bringing about our vision of a world where women are empowered to live positive, healthy lives.

We do this by working to reduce inequalities in the health and wellbeing of women living and working in London, aiming to remove barriers and generate change.



education and disease prevention

SWAP, the Southwark Weight and Activity Programme, is a 12-week weight management, physical activity and healthy eating programme. Follow-up monthly drop-in weight management networking evenings keep participants motivated and on track.

Find out more about SWAP and if its for you.

During SWAP I shared a journey with a great group of people, it was led by dedicated teachers and I now have all the tools I need to lose weight, be healthy and reduce my risk of diabetes.

women only accessible health and fitness

Our women only gym and studio keep local residents and workers fit, healthy and active, especially women whose culture or self-confidence makes them uncomfortable in mixed gyms. Here, they can work out in a relaxed atmosphere with support from professional fitness instructors.

Our fee and membership structures mean that financial barriers are minimised.

Our accessible equipment opens up opportunities for disabled women. 

Several times a year, we offer free access to the gym and exercise classes and invite people to take part in mini health checks.


community events in our cafe

Watch out for our next free non-contact boxing event where, with our partner London Community Boxing, we turn our café into a boxing ring.

We also host teas in the café for Contact the Elderly.
