WELCOME TO WOMENSPACE
Humans are naturally social beings. Global studies have identified a strong desire for social connection in people. In fact, women rank social connection as very important for our sense of well being, whatever our stage in life.
We live in a fast paced and changing world with access to social media and instantaneous communications, yet many of us live or work alone and this can contribute to a feeling of social isolation.
Events that trigger the feeling of social isolation or loneliness include children leaving home, the death of a parent, relocation, illness, relationship breakdowns, the death of a spouse, even retirement.
When our social needs are not adequately met, a complex set of feelings we recognise as loneliness sets in. Loneliness has been associated with a range of poor mental, physical and socio‑economic outcomes, including low self-esteem, suicide, depression, heart disease and poor physical health.
All of these factors have been the catalyst for establishing Womenspace. We know women are strong, resilient and resourceful. We also know that we thrive better when we are connected to like minded people. Connectedness strongly impacts on our well being, it also enriches our lives, empowers us and help us to live life to the full. Join us in the circle of friendship.
