New report and resource from Women's Resource Centre

Posted on 28 April 2015

Women's organisations; the 'net beneath the net': the role of the women's voluntary and community organisations and benefit of specialist women's services.

Women's Organisations 'net beneath the net' seeks to increase further understanding of the role of Women's Voluntary and Community Organisations (WVCOs), the value of specialist women's organisations both within and beyond the area of violence against women and girls and highlights the need for women specialist services, particularly those that are led by and for ethnic minority women.

The report urges commissioners and decision makers to recognise the value of the women's VCOs and understand that supporting women supports families and wider society.
