  • working with other regional committees and the National Women’s Committee,
  • raising awareness of and campaigning on issues that affect women members,
  • increasing training provision that meets the particular needs and issues of women members,
  • building networks and alliances with other women’s groups and organisations,

  • working with and supporting branch women’s officers.

The weekend and AGM costs £75, please speak to your branch about funding the training session.
