Join the Women’s Budget Group and the Coventry Women’s Partnership on International Women’s Day as we launch our newest report on the status of the funding for the women’s sector.

The report looks at the life-changing and life-saving support and services that women’s specialist organisations provide to disadvantaged women and their positive contribution to local communities and wider society.

We will be hearing from women’s specialist organisations in Coventry about the challenges they are facing in a context of less funding, more competition and increased demand, including:

  • the impact of public spending cuts and other features of the funding landscape on the financial sustainability of women’s organisations;
  • increased demand for women’s organisations services in local communities.

The event is targeted to women’s organisations and other voluntary-sector organisations, funders (both statutory and from civil society), policymakers, politicians and other stakeholders to highlight the extent of the problem and what needs to be changed.
