You will receive a electronic version of the photo’s which you will be able to use on your own marketing materials. 

Introduction:

Waysgoneby came about after I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2013 and again in 2015.  I have always had a healthy approach to life, eating well and exercising, but I hadn’t really stopped to think about the products I used on my skin.  My diagnosis was the kick-start I needed to focus not just on what I was putting into my body, but what I was putting on it.  Once I started researching all the chemicals to which I was exposing myself and my family, I realised just how unnecessary they were. I decided to make my own products based on natural ingredients including herbs, carrier oils and essential oils. That was two years ago and the business is going from strength to strength!

This project is funded by the Big Lottery Fund and the European Social Fund and provides a fantastic opportunity to help 500 individuals move forward with their lives. The project is being delivered by a partnership that brings together a wealth of skills, expertise and experience to make sure that everyone gets the help that is right for them. Our partnership is made up of WSX Enterprise, Action Hampshire, Surrey Community Action, University of Winchester and Fredericks Foundation.
