Recent budget cuts have brought changes and uncertainty to future funding of programmes for women in disadvantaged and rural areas. The women’s sector is working hard to ensure the services for women in disadvantaged and rural areas are supported and sustained.
The Women’s Regional Consortium is working alongside women and community organisations to meet with government. We will highlight issues affecting the women’s sector crisis. We ask government to recognise the need for women’s community based services and their support in sustaining them.
The Consortium will continue to support women’s organisations to ensure the services for women in disadvantaged and rural areas are maintained and developed.
