Update from Activate

We wanted to give you a bit of an update about what’s been going on at Activate. Well we have been busy and as the UK braced for a lockdown amidst the pandemic we wanted to take stock of what we have done so far and find reasons to celebrate.
 
Looking back at our achievements:

Covid19- Help and Support Group For Asylum Seekers in North East,UK

If possible, please share and like the page below. Due to the ongoing food crisis and asylum seekers are living gon £37 a week which is £5 a day are struggling a lot to get basic foods and needs. Created this platform to spread the information and help available for the asylum seekers in need now. All organisations in the northeast can join and help us to reach via this platform and if you can send us your plan we can signpost asylum seekers in your community in need asap.

Coronavirus and child contact arrangements – Rights of Women

At Rights of Women we have been receiving calls seeking advice about contact arrangements in the current pandemic.

Many families will have to make changes to the arrangements that were in place but how significant those changes are will depend on the circumstances of the individual family.

We have set out below what we believe to be the most sensible approach in the current climate. On this page we cover:

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.

Covid-19: Gender and other Equality Issues

Key Points - there will be regular updates in this fast-moving situation.
• Covid-19 is a global public health crisis and an economic crisis which impacts on different groups including
women, BAME communities and disabled people, differently. Therefore, a response that takes into account
different groups’ positioning in society and in the economy is necessary:
• The Government must support businesses to continue paying their staff if they cannot operate.
• Both eligibility for, and rate of, Statutory Sick Pay must increase.

Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Violence against Women and Girls

A research briefing written in response to the query: What is the evidence of how the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic2 might impact on violence against women and girls (VAWG)? Please draw on any emerging global evidence from the current outbreak in corona virus, as well as other similar epidemics? (e.g. Ebola)
