Fair Treatment for the Women of Wales

Any other names/acronyms which you are known by: FTWW

Description: Fair Treatment for the Women of Wales (FTWW) is a third sector organisation set up to support, inform, educate, and advocate for girls and women in Wales who are suffering a range of health conditions and who are not receiving adequate (or fair) treatment.

FTWW aims to empower women to speak up with confidence amidst a medical and societal environment which tends to privilege the male experience, often dismissing women’s symptoms and concerns as being ‘psychological’ in origin.

Current campaign is on Endometriosis but it is our mission to support all girls and women regardless of the condition as we notice the big inequalities women face within the healthcare system.

We have a closed Facebook group for discussion and information, a website, and you can also contact us for further support.

Services Offered: Support, Guidance
