Menopause Matters

A support group for staff who are going through perimenopause and menopause or those interested in understanding more about this natural stage of life.

About the menopause

Menopause is a natural part of aging and usually begins in your early to mid-forties with perimenopause, which can last several years.

There are many symptoms you can experience while in perimenopause and menopause. From anxiety and brain fog, to migraines, dizziness, tinnitus, aches and pains and difficulty sleeping. The list goes on. We started the Menopause Matters network to offer support to anyone going through this stage of life (or anyone interested in understanding more about it), to help you feel less alone at work. All are welcome.

We have a dedicated Teams group for sharing information and supporting each other. We also host optional in-person and virtual catch ups if you'd like to connect with other colleagues face-to-face.

Menopause meet up

Find out more about our optional in-person and virtual catch ups.

We host a meet up every month − alternating between in-person and virtually, over Teams. Meetings take place over lunchtime and are informal. You can drop in whenever you feel like it. If you'd like to join us for tea, biscuits and a friendly chat with colleagues at a similar stage of life, please get in touch to be added to the Teams group, where we communicate meet up dates.

Helpful resources

For further information on menopause and how to navigate it while at work, you can also refer to our employee and manager guidance.
