What we do

We work to improve the lives of those affected by endometriosis and to decrease the impact it has on those with the condition and their families and friends.

We are a source of information and support

Endometriosis UK provides free, reliable information about endometriosis on our website, and through our printed and download materials. Our Support Network provides vital, emotional support and information to those who have endometriosis through our support groups and helpline, enabling them to understand their disease and take control of their condition. Visit our Get Support pages.

We raise awareness

With the help of our volunteers, we raise awareness of endometriosis, and the issues that affect those living with it, among healthcare professionals, those with endometriosis and their families and colleagues, the public and the media. By developing clear policies, Endometriosis UK aims to influence national governments and healthcare providers to achieve the standards of care and treatment that those with endometriosis deserve.

We’re a membership organisation

This means that those with endometriosis – or those who are affected by it - are a core part of the work we do.  They direct what we do through our board of trustees, deliver our support services and help define and refine our campaigns and policies. Our members have helped to make our charity the UK’s leading provider of support and information on endometriosis. Find out how you can Become a Member.

We’re involved in research

We are involved with a number of research projects, helping to shape, deliver and disseminate these and we hope to develop this area. Regular surveys and polls with our members and other stakeholders also contribute to our research activities. We're also working with PhD research to produce quarterly endometriosis research reviews.
