NEWomen’s Network is about

  • strengthening the women’s sector and ensuring the survival of women’s organisations.
  • building partnership and collaboration between women’s organisations so that they can develop and raise the profile of issues facing women in the North East.

The North East Women’s Sector Network is organised regionally, and aims to ensure good links into each area of the region, and across six diversity strands (young women, lesbian and bisexual women, black and minority ethnic women, women with disabilities, older women and women of different faith groups).

Here are the latest Terms of Reference for the Network and the latest NEWN Strategic Plan May14

Valuable and much needed services for women are closing down. Over 200 women’s voluntary and community organisations (VCOs) are part of the NEWomen’s Network. They provide free, and often life-saving services to women from all walks of life and lobby for better laws to end discrimination against women. The North East of England (NE) has the lowest number of women’s VCOs of all the English regions and they are the most likely to be facing closure.
