Our groups and partnerships

 The North East Women's Network has a number of sub-groups and embraces other projects and partnerships.

  • NEEVAWG (North East End Violence Against Women and Girls) Network.
    The Network exists to amplify the policy voice of the specialist violence against women and girls sector in the North East. It welcomes everyone, individuals and organisations, working to end all forms of violence and abuse against women and girls in the North East of England.

  • Women in the Economy working group.
    Following an event in May 2014 which highlighted the economic inequalities facing women in the north-east region, a small task group was formed to review and strengthen NEWN’s recommendations to policy makers and strategic funders across the region.

  • Eliminating discrimination against women (CEDAW)

  • Women First
    Women First is a partnership of women’s voluntary and community organisations established to co-ordinate and expand women and girl’s support services through collaboration, innovation and enterprise.  The intention is that through partnership and collaboration, its members more resilient and able to respond proactively to tender and funding opportunities. Women First was born out of collaboration between NEWN members and the Women’s Commissioning Support Unit (WCSU). WCSU is Women’s Resource Centre’s (www.wrc.org.uk) three-year pilot project funded by  Esmée Fairbairn Foundation. The aim is to develop the strategic and delivery capacity of the women’s voluntary sector by enabling them to engage with commissioning opportunities.
