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.

Young women in our communities are more likely to be unemployed or on zero hours contracts. Too many already struggle to make ends meet at the end of each month. For them, this crisis will mean real hardship.
