Women’s Wellbeing and Reproductive Health

On this page you will find information about the project, which is being run by Heeley Trust, Heeley Primary Care Network and SOHAS. It is funded by the VCSE Health and Wellbeing fund, part of a partnership programme between the Department of Health and Social Care, NHS England and UK Health Security Agency.

SOHAS’s work on the project involves providing advice to women on women’s wellbeing and productive health issues who live or work in Sheffield.

We can support SMEs on women’s work, wellbeing and reproductive health issues. Whether on a one-to-one basis or via meetings.

You can find information about the aims of the project and the work that is carried out by Heeley Trust and Heeley Primary Care Network here at:

How the SOHAS advice service works

The service is for women who are in employment, either at work or off sick whose wellbeing productive health issues are affecting their workplace health. We can give advice on a face to face basis at the SOHAS office, on Teams or Zoom or over the phone. The advice we give is free and confidential and we do contact your employer unless we have your consent to do so.

It’s easy to make an appointment to see an adviser, you can send a confidential message to us by clicking on this link or you can ring us on 0114 277 5760.

Advice sessions last for 45 minutes. There is no limit on how many advice sessions, and you can contact a SOHAS adviser whenever you want more support.

In the advice session, the adviser will ask you about the issues that are affecting your workplace health and give you some practical advice you can use at work. We can also advocate on your behalf with your employer if you wish us to do so. Our aim is to help you return to work after sickness absence or support you to stay at work.

Quotes from people who have been helped by the project

“If it wasn’t for the SOHAS adviser, I wouldn’t be back at work. They supported me every step of the way and were always consistent and supportive with their advice.”
