A charity for women living with endometriosis is looking for co-leaders to set up a support group in Preston.


The condition affects up to one in ten women and causes pain which disrupts their quality of life.

Endometriosis UK provides vital support, information and a community for those affected by the condition.

A spokesperson for Endometriosis UK said: “Local support groups can offer much needed information and support for anyone affected by endometriosis, and can give those whose lives are affected by endometriosis the chance to meet and talk with others who share and understand their situation.”

The charity is hoping to establish a Preston group in the New Year and needs volunteers to train to become group leaders.

It requires a day’s training in February and a commitment of a few hours a month to facilitate and administrate the group.
