About Us

Marie Stopes UK is a reproductive health charity, best known for its abortion services which help 70,000 women a year. Our network of welcoming clinics and local community services, together with a 24-hour confidential helpline, provide high quality, safe, accessible and compassionate advice, care and support for the women and men who need us. 95% of our services are commissioned by the NHS.

Our clinic network is growing as part of our strategy to be the charity of choice for the women and men who turn to us for help. Our influence is growing too, as we work to increase public and political understanding of the issues women and men face in making reproductive choices.

We’re looking for people who share our drive to provide the best quality care to everyone who needs our services, to join our committed teams of clinical, management and support teams.

We’re proud to be champions for reproductive choice, and we work hard every day to make a reality of women’s rights to decide whether and when to have children.
