A creative advocacy project led by local women in Calderdale.

ONE VOICE is an extraordinarily diverse group of local women with lived experience of gender and cultural inequality, domestic and childhood abuse, poverty (monetary and opportunity) depression, and anxiety. Now empowered, they lead events that inspire others to believe they too can bring about change, that the power for change lies with those with lived experience.

This funding from the newly appointed West Yorkshire Mayor Tracey Brabin’s Office will:

Devise, publish and present an action plan to bring about change in relation to Violence Against Women and Girls and lack of cultural diversity, with the issues they believe are the most important at the fore.

Using the Hear Us! Action plan as a starting point, running local workshops with women and girls to raise awareness and build their confidence to start the journey of making changes.

Women from the ONE VOICE group to present the Action Plan to local stakeholders at a ‘community conversation’, with + for local women, police, social services, council, prevent team, Mayor, MPs, women’s organisations.
