Event description

Description

You are invited to the launch of a brand new and innovative 3 year programme to change the culture of access to services for women across Coventry.

'Coventry Women’s Partnership', led by FWT – a centre for women, has been created with partner organisations in Coventry to ensure women in the city feel supported in safe environments, empowered and believed. We want to break down barriers in access to crucial services, and to make support easier. Our partnership includes Coventry Haven Women’s Aid, CRASAC, Coventry Law Centre and Kairos WWT. Coventry Women’s Partnership is funded by the Smallwood Trust.

Our research partner, the Women’s Budget Group, will share the findings of their new report, The Female Face of Poverty: examining the causes and consequences of economic deprivation for women, which combines national research with evidence of women’s experience in Coventry. This report is the first of a series of research reports that will draw on the experiences of women supported by the programme.

Through referrals across the partnership, we will work with women who need support in any of the following areas:

•Education, Training and Routes to Employment
•Confidence Building
•Free Legal Advice including Debt Advice
•Health & Wellbeing Support & Easier Access to Services
•Rape & Sexual Abuse, Accessing Therapeutic Support and Advocacy
•Domestic Violence and Abuse (all forms)
•Pathways to Exiting Prostitution, Homelessness & Drug Addiction
•Staying Safe
•Language Support
•Access to Childcare

* Registrations from 9.30am for a 10am start
