Our mission

Supporting, informing and raising awareness

We are the catalysts to positive change for those living with endometriosis

On this page, we’ll do our best to show you how passionate we really are. Passionate about supporting you with your endometriosis journey. Passionate about breaking down outdated barriers and taboos.

Together, we are stronger.

Our Purpose

Scotland has unique healthcare challenges compared to those living in the rest of the world. We don’t claim to be in the worst situation and accept that no country is perfect. However, there are unique challenges that require unique support.

Endo SOS is dedicated to supporting individuals living with endometriosis and their carers in South Scotland. We strive to be a dependable source of information, blending scientific accuracy with lived experiences.

Our aim is not just to spread awareness but to offer tools and strategies for managing this condition in everyday life.

Our Vision

We dream of a world where endometriosis is widely recognised and understood—a world where quick diagnosis and effective management are standard.

Every person affected by this condition feels supported in their journey. Our vision is a community where knowledge leads to empowerment, and empowerment leads to a better quality of life.

And ultimately, a world where a cure exists for this debilitating condition.

Our strategic goals

Through these goals, Endo SOS hopes to make a meaningful difference in the lives of those affected by endometriosis and their families across South Scotland.

Support + Understanding

Living with endometriosis can be challenging. We're here to offer support, understanding, and practical advice for those affected and their carers.

We're proactive in our approach, leading awareness campaigns and fundraising events. We empower individuals and communities to take action for change.

Ensure Accessibility

Our resources are designed with the needs of our community in mind, ensuring they are user-friendly and easily accessible to everyone, regardless of their situation.

Our values

These values are at the heart of everything we do here at Endo SOS.

Inclusivity

Endometriosis affects individuals from all walks of life. We are committed to creating an inclusive environment where everyone's experience is valued and respected.

Empathy

We’re in this together. Our directors and volunteers have first-hand experience with living with endometriosis, either personally or through someone close to them.

Community

We believe in the power of community. By working together, sharing experiences, and supporting one another, we can make a greater impact in the fight against endometriosis.
