Menopause advocates

Meet our menopause advocates - supporting those needing support and guidance on the menopause

Show team profiles

We’re building a network of menopause advocates across our membership who can offer support and guidance for those going through the menopause, or those seeking advice. It's a useful way to ensure everyone gets the support they need in work, and know what support and treatments are available from medical professionals. 

Accord's menopause advocates are available for both members and non-members to talk to.

Find out more about menopause support on our Menopause guidance page.
