Womens Resource Centre campaigns - sign up

At Women's Resource Centre, we are taking action to save our sector and save women's lives. Women's specialist charities reach women that other services simply cannot and these organisations are best placed to protect them and meet their needs. 

But they are heading towards crisis point. The Coronavirus outbreak is having huge impact on service delivery whilst the demand for these services is set to triple.

There are 3 things you can do to help us amplify the voices of women to ensure our rights and our lives are not forgotten.

Girls Speak Campaign

Every girl should be able to live her life free from inequality, poverty and violence.

But too often girls at the sharpest end of inequality are missing from the public debate about the issues young people face and services and policies are designed without them in mind.
