Further information including agenda for the day and highlights
Join us at The Gaygill Rooms at The Piece Hall
Friday 3rd March 2023
9.30 am – 14.30 pm
Drawing on the life experiences of women from communities across Calderdale, special guests include Holly Lynch MP & Alison Lowe OBE West Yorkshire Deputy Mayor.
Crucially, we want to look at what we can do together to address some of the key factors that impact on health, opportunity, aspiration and social justice. The event will draw on the life experiences of women from diverse communities across Calderdale, using their voices to raise awareness of keys issues, and importantly, discuss ways in which lived experience can be used to inform and help shape policy and decision making at a local regional and national level.
We want to make sure that the voices of women and girls are included in regional and national discussions around health, poverty and social cohesion. We want to make our communities stronger. And by creating this safe space for visitors to learn and connect around tough local issues, we aim to provide a unique opportunities for people to get involved in helping to shape and influence change.
This event has been made possible thanks to support from West Yorkshire Mayor’s Safer Communities Fund, The National Lottery Community Fund and the Community Foundation for Calderdale.
