more

Event Details

The Scottish Women’s Convention (SWC) are coming to Kilmarnock to hold a free discussion event for local women. The organisation exists to consult with women throughout Scotland about things which are important to them, in order that their voices are heard by policy and decision makers at all levels. The SWC was set up in 2003 to enable grassroots women to discuss issues relevant to them. Since its inception the organisation has engaged with a wide range of women throughout the country.

We will hold informal, facilitated round table discussions with women attending, discussing a range of issues including (but not limited to) employment, health, housing, transport, welfare benefits and carers. The information gathered will then go on to inform SWC responses to both Scottish and UK Parliament and Government consultations and calls for evidence.

It is vital that, during this time of change for Scotland, the concerns of women are listened to by politicians. Women are losing their jobs, local services are being cut or withdrawn and women are being asked to contribute more by filling gaps through volunteering. Women account for over 50% of Scotland’s population, yet decision makers forget the impact on women when drafting policy. The Scottish Women’s Convention provides a vital role in ensuring local women have a voice and a link with political discussion.

This is a free event and lunch will be provided.
