Empowering Women in Our Community: A Message from Our CEO

In the heart of Bellshill, a remarkable transformation is underway, all thanks to the incredible women who come together in our Women's Group, Our Time, at YMCA Bellshill & Mossend. As CEO, it's both humbling and inspiring to witness the profound impact this group has had on its members, a testament to the resilience, strength, and spirit of every woman involved. 

Our Time is a group full of Fun, Optimism and Empowerment, a place where women from all walks of life find acceptance, understanding, and support. It's a sanctuary where every woman is valued, heard, and celebrated for who she is. Through our group, members have discovered a profound sense of belonging, leading to increased confidence, the joy of new friendships, and the excitement of learning and growing together. 

The diversity within our group is one of our greatest strengths, enriching our community with a tapestry of cultures, experiences, and perspectives. This vibrant diversity has allowed us to enjoy cross-cultural events and activities that celebrate our differences and unite us in joy and learning. From cooking traditional dishes from around the world to dancing to the rhythms of distant lands, these experiences have not only broadened our horizons but have also fostered a deeper understanding and appreciation of one another. 

Mental health and well-being are at the core of what we do. In today's world, women face unique challenges and struggles, often carrying the weight of personal, professional, and societal expectations. Our group provides a safe space for women to share their experiences, support each other through challenges, and celebrate each other's successes.

The positive impact on mental health is unmistakable, with members reporting a significant improvement in their overall well-being since joining the group. 

We are incredibly grateful for the support of the VANL Health and Wellbeing Fund, whose generous funding has been instrumental in the continuation and expansion of Our Time. This support ensures that we can keep providing a nurturing and empowering environment for our members, helping more women to find their voice, build their confidence, and realise their potential. 

As we look to the future, we are excited about the possibilities that lie ahead for Our Time. Our commitment to supporting women in our community remains unwavering, and we are dedicated to continuing our work in creating a space where every woman can thrive. To all the women who are part of our group, and to those who have yet to join us, know that you have a place here, a community that believes in you, and a support system that will always stand with you. 

Thank you to everyone who has been a part of this journey – the members, volunteers, staff and our partners like the VANL, NCL and NHS. Together, we are making a difference, one woman at a time. 

Together, we are stronger.
