Women’s Sector Conference

Women’s Sector Conference

WHiST were delighted to host a conference with the Women’s Sector and the Big Lottery Fund focusing on funding priorities and the growing demand for women’s counselling and listening services in the region.  Many women’s services are under threat at present.  Some women’s organisations have been successful in securing Women’s and Girls Funding through the Big Lottery Fund, the conference highlighted these projects and informed conference delegates of the forthcoming changes to the Big Lottery Fund’s priorities and grant making processes. In evaluating the event one of the Big Lottery North East Team commented: “We all felt it was a great opportunity to let the organisations know the changes coming to the future look of BIG and this is the first external event where we have shared these messages so it was good for us to get a sense of what people thought.”
