Hello, I’m Jane Straccia, Tenant Engagement Advisor at Six Town Housing and our in-house qualified Menopause Support Coach.

Next month, on October 18th, it is World Menopause Day and there are a number of events happening to help raise awareness of the effects of the Menopause and the support that’s available.
