Tyneside Women’s Health (TWH)
Tyneside Women’s Health (TWH) was set up in 1985 to provide mental health support to women in a women-only environment. The driver for this commitment was the belief that gender inequality has a significantly negative impact on women’s wellbeing, and therefore providing a sensitive, therapeutic, female environment for women with mental health issues has potential to help maximise women’s recovery.
TWH became a registered charity in July 1987 and since that time has developed from a part time group with a project identity into a full time organisation with a head office and satellite centre. In 2008, the organisation became a Company Limited by Guarantee, (Company No. 06702528 registered in England) whilst retaining charitable status registered (Charity No. 1126648 registered in England and Wales). The Company was established under a Memorandum of Association, which established the objects and powers of the charitable company, and is governed under its Articles of Association.See more
