As part of our celebrations of World Menopause Day, the Club is delighted to share a new short-documentary looking into our journey to becoming Menopause Friendly Employers!
Featuring testimony from CEO Jake Edwards, Manager Darren Moore, Operations Director Ann Hough and HR Manager and Equality Lead Zoe Shackleton alongside various other members of Club staff, the piece highlights Town’s commitment to being as open and inclusive an environment as possible, with our progress with menopause a clear sign of that desire.
Our journey with Menopause Friendly Employer status begun in July 2021, demonstrating over the course of the next year our support for the cause, eventually becoming the first club in UK to achieve full Menopause Friendly status in June 2022.
Twice nominated in the Menopause Friendly Employer Awards in 2022 and earlier this year in 2023, we were delighted to be named the Most Supportive Partner at the most recent awards ceremony in September 2023, with the win coming a few days before our PLEDIS Advanced Award was presented to us!

World Menopause Day is held each year on 18 October to raise awareness, break the stigma and highlight the support available for improving health and wellbeing for those experiencing menopause.
Menopause is not just a gender or age issue, it is an organisational issue which can impact colleagues both directly or indirectly. Awareness around this topic is key to reducing the stigma attached to menopause and encouraging people to talk more openly about it.
In recognition of our work in becoming Menopause Friendly, Carolyn Harris MP sent the following video message to the Club!
