Women’s Health in South Tyneside

WHiST was originally established in 1986 by a group of local women working voluntarily to address gaps in services and support. It has developed services in response to identified local needs and flourished into its present form as a result of this.

Volunteers have always formed the backbone of the organisation and WHiST would not be the organisation it is without their involvement.

Our services offer a “wrap around” holistic model of support allowing women to find a route through support to suit their changing needs.

We work in collaboration with other agencies in order to streamline our services and to ensure that we are addressing gaps and making a positive difference for the women accessing them.
