About Us

WHFS (Women's Health & Family Services) is a multi-cultural community health charity focused on health and empowerment issues for disadvantaged women and their families.

We are based in Tower Hamlets, one of the most deprived areas in Britain, where low life-expectancy, as a direct result of health inequalities, is widespread.  We have been working and campaigning since 1981 to promote health education and equal access to healthcare for local communities, through our proven model of recruiting and training local women as advocates and volunteers to deliver health services.  Please click here for information on our current projects.
