The impact of austerity measures on women's voluntary community organisations and the response of the women's sector

06.09.2016 / Created by (EMWF)

This report is based on the analysis of a survey, and the evidence collected by Women Resource Centre (WRC) to demonstrate how far the cuts have destabilised the women's voluntary and community sector. The report is organised into two parts: Part One analyses the survey data in relation to the impact of austerity and associated spending cuts upon the women’s sector, Part Two begins to map out a manifesto for the women’s sector to realise a five year vision by 2021, toward equality for women in the UK.
