Womens Health in South Tyneside


WHiST was established in 1986 by a group of local women working voluntarily to address gaps in services and support. It has continued to develop services in response to identified local needs and has flourished into a holistic ‘wrap around’ model of provision that women can dip in and out of to suit their changing needs and circumstances.

WHiST supports over 250 different women per week to become more independent so they feel more empowered and confident about making decisions that affect their and their families health, wellbeing and progression.
