Welcome to NEWomens Network

NEWomen’s Network is primarily concerned with strengthening the women’s sector and ensuring the survival of women’s organisations. It is about 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, with leads for each four sub-regions (Durham, Tees Valley, Northumberland and Tyne and Wear) 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).

Valuable and much needed services for women are closing down. Over 200 women’s voluntary and community organisations (VCOs) are part of 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 are the most likely to be facing closure.
