Together for Change: Disabled Women Take Action

Do you identify as disabled or have a long-term health condition? Bristol Women’s Voice is empowering women to share their experiences and work towards positive change by joining our Women’s Action Group.
This community will provide an opportunity to meet with others on a monthly basis, in person and online, to identify common goals and influence practical and policy changes across Bristol, while also developing your skills and experiences through volunteering.
This partnership project is being delivered by Bristol Women’s Voice and WECIL and has been developed following the City Listening Project. Supported by the Government Equalities Office (GEO), the City Listening Project focused on enabling the voices of women, particularly those that frequently go unheard, to contribute to better policy-making.
If you are interested in discovering more about Disabled Women Take Action and becoming part of this Women’s Action Group, read more about the role here or get in touch directly: dwta@bristolwomensvoice.org.uk.
Please note: We will meet access needs and offer alternative forms of communication to support participation.

Bubble Leaders and participants – Covid Keep in Touch project 

We are looking for Volunteers to help us connect women across the city.

‘Bubble Leaders’  will set up and administer WhatsApp (or similar) contact bubbles of between three to 12 women. 

Bubble Leaders will need to come to a two-hour online training session with Bristol Women’s Voice and monthly check in meetings. We will also be in regular contact to offer support throughout the project period.  Bubble Leaders will need to be able to commit to between one and three hours as week.

We also invite women to contact us if they feel they would benefit from being part of a bubble, accessing peer support and resources tailored to their needs. 

You can find more information and a form to register your interest here. Once you have filled in the form we will get back to you about the way forward.
