Daisy Network UK
The Daisy Network is a support group for women in their teens, 20's, 30's and 40's suffering from premature menopause. It is run by volunteers who have experienced this condition, and is supported by specialist experts in this field. The Daisy Network is a not-for-profit organisation and has no paid members of staff. They rely solely on the support of their volunteers and members.
The Daisy Network was founded in 1995 by a group of women who were patients of Dr. Conway, who is a patron of the charity. An affiliation with the charity Infertility Network UK (previously known as CHILD) was formed at the same time. The group started off being run by women in their spare time and today continues to be run totally by volunteers.
