Women In Wellies

The Women In Wellies project will create opportunities for women in farming, agriculture, and horticulture to come together, meet socially, and develop peer support relationships while also creating opportunities for LRSN to provide health and wellbeing support. The sessions will be led by one of the LRSN nurses, who will offer health screening checks alongside a focus on delivering health information, awareness raising and supporting improved wellbeing. 

Come along to one of the following Women In Wellies events, we'd love to see you there...
