“After holding our first Menopause Café, we heard from our female staff that Menopause issues in the workplace is a real concern for many. We were asked to provide in-depth, real, truthful and knowledgeable training sessions to help support staff and managers across the University. Healthy You Ltd came at just the right time for us and provided exactly what we asked for and so much more. We’ve had some fantastic feedback from attendees of their sessions. Unknowingly, Healthy You Ltd Have been invaluable in allowing the Medical School Athena SWAN Team to evidence the impact that we have, which will go a long way to our Gold award submission next year. On behalf of our staff, thank you Healthy You Ltd!”University of Sheffield
