Bristol Women’s Voice have secured funding to support disabled, marginalised and minoritised women’s visibility, voice, influence in decision making across Bristol to create greater equity for women and girls across the city.
We have two new projects starting through which we will create women’s action groups to work together to the barriers to equity that women raised during the City Listening Project. One project is specifically for disabled women.
We have the following vacancies:
