Partner With Us

WHFS (Women's Health & Family Services) works with a range of organisations to transform lives and we’re always looking for new partners to work with, who share our desire to make a difference.

People work with us because of:

  • Our deep community roots and our long-established insight and access to the range of communities we work with in east London (especially the Bangladeshi, Somali, Chinese and Vietnamese communities).
  • Our reputation for successfully delivering health services to difficult-to-reach multi-cultural communities (and women in particular) using appropriately trained volunteers.


Joint bids are a feature of our working, and so if you also aspire to empowering women and their families to lead healthy lives, we'd love to hear from you.

Statutory Partners

Our achievements would not be possible without the support of our funders and we have successful long-term relationships with a number of statutory agencies, such as:

National Charities

WHFS also partners with specialist health charities such as Cancer Research UK and Diabetes UK to bring best-in-class expertise to the training of our volunteers.

“I really enjoyed running the Diabetes Community Champions training session for WHFS.  I found the group really engaged.  In particular, there was a lot of discussion around the ‘cultural myths and misconceptions’ module; participants were very familiar with the myths [about diabetes] and keen to dispel them.”
Juliet O’Brien
Diverse Communities Officer, Equality and Diversity, Diabetes UK (April 2014)

We have also partnered with the charity, Rosa, who along with Comic Relief, funded our FGM/C (female genital mutilation/cutting) project in 2014.

Recognition for our work

WHFS is recognised for the excellence of its service provision and in 2012 was rewarded for its work by winning a Glaxosmith Kline / Kings Fund ‘IMPACT’ Bronze Award  for ‘excellence in community healthcare’.
