Cumbria Support Group
About this group
Endometriosis UK Cumbria
Since December 2019, we have been reaching and making a difference to those who are struggling with the effect endometriosis has on their lives.
We have created a friendly, safe, and confidential space to:
- Provide information – We help you understand the condition through discussion, expert speakers and diverse tools.
- Support – We facilitate meetings indoors, outdoors and online which enable you to talk with others who are experiencing/have experienced issues with endometriosis
- Socialise - Make new friends and have fun together!

We would like to partner with businesses in Cumbria through the Endometriosis Friendly Employer Scheme.

I'm Elaine, I’m based in Windermere and I had Stage 4 (severe) deep infiltrating endometriosis as well as Type 1 adenomyosis before my surgery in May 2022. Surgery went well and I have been living pain and sickness free ever since.
I started the Endometriosis UK Cumbria Support Group in December 2019 with the intention of bringing together people from all corners of this vast county who have the disease so they feel less isolated, more understood and more supported. It’s lovely to see people building friendships and socialising together outside of our meetings.
We usually meet once a month either at the Keswick Museum or the Fellside Centre in Kendal (behind Booths), alternating the locations. All meetings can now be accessed virtually via Zoom too.
I hope this sounds like a community you'd like to be a part of.
If it does, I look forward to meeting you soon!
Hi I'm Gemma :)
Im based in Kendal. I currently have had 5 operations over my adult life to remove endometriosis and recently have been diagnosed with deep infiltrating endometriosis on my uterus. I also have suspected thoracic endometriosis.
I joined the group in the summer last year and instantly felt at home amongst people that were experiencing the same things that I have been. I wanted to give back because of that and now im a co leader!
Im looking forward to meeting more people who would like to be part of the group.
