One in six couples experience infertility; with Chana Charitable Trust, they are not alone. The pain of not having one’s own family is particularly acute in the Jewish community where the family is so central. Chana has helped hundreds of couples to better understand and deal with fertility challenges and has supported them every step of the way.
Chana provides specialist medical support and information, individual and couple counselling, a confidential Helpline and events highlighting medical information. The organisation is backed by an expert Medical Advisory Panel, sensitive to the needs of the Jewish community.
Chana relies on donations from the community to continue and develop its work.
To date, 643 babies have been born to couples supported by Chana.

Chizuk’s aim is to help individuals – and their families – in the Orthodox Jewish Community who have mental health problems, reducing their sense of isolation, building confidence and encouraging them to take their place in Society. Chizuk also offers help and support to those experiencing life crises.
Our services include art therapy, befriending, drop-in groups, family consultations, hospital visits, organising carers, advocacy and public events.
As the only mental health organisation that specialises in providing a religiously and culturally sensitive environment for its Orthodox Jewish users, Chizuk’s role is also educational, in that it helps to combat stigma by changing the way that mental health is viewed in the Community. Chizuk is a national service.
