Following a very well recieved mental health and wellbeing workshop in the summer, Bristol Women's Voice, together with Rethink, CASS (Community Access Support Service) and Nilaari Agency are hosting a series of support sessions for women from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic backgrounds. This sessions provide a safe space for women who feel they need support or help in the current climate.
In summer 2019 Bristol Women’s Voice launched the City Listening Project supported by the Government Equalities Office (GEO) to ensure the voices of women, particularly those that frequently go unheard, contribute to better policy-making. The GEO was particularly keen to hear from women facing multiple barriers including those in low paid employment, BAME women and disabled women. The City Listening Project report is available and can be found here.
Bristol Women’s Voice is working in the city to equip women with a basic knowledge of their pregnancy and maternity rights at work. Our Maternity Discrimination Project aims to provide disadvantaged women with access to information on their legal rights and help reduce financial and emotional stress caused as a result of discrimination. The project aims to reduce the number of women losing their jobs as a result of maternity discrimination and help women return to work after maternity leave.
