RAISING AWARENESS: We’ve been organising and attending events to get people talking about women’s mental health, domestic abuse and sexual violence.

2018-03-08T15:18:20+00:00

The highlight for us was our Information Sharing Event for Bristol Women’s Services. This was an opportunity to find out about women’s services in Bristol with guest speakers, light refreshments and agencies providing services for women in Bristol exhibiting information.

Other events included Bristol’s Blue Monday Galleries event, where we were delighted to join over 40 local organisations, offering Bristol residents the chance to have informal chats with our expert advisors.

And we could not resist joining the Lantern parade, celebrating the centenary anniversary of women getting the right to vote.

A very special thank you to the lovely Phoebe for singing at the launch and to our Guest speakers Sue Mountstevens, Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) for Avon and Somerset, and Amanda Deeks, Chief Executive, South Gloucestershire Council.
