Coventry Women’s Partnership

Supporting Women – Connecting Services

Coventry Women’s Partnership is a unique 3-year project, led by FWT – A Centre for women, which has been created with 5 organisations in Coventry to ensure women in the city feel supported, empowered and believed. We want to break down barriers in access to crucial services, and to make support easier. Our partnership includes Coventry Haven Women’s Aid, CRASAC, Coventry Law Centre and Kairos WWT. 

Through referrals across the partnership, we will work with women who need support in any of the following areas:

  • Education, Training and routes to Employment
  • Confidence Building 
  • Financial security including Debt Advice
  • Health & Wellbeing support & easier access to services 
  • Rape & Sexual Abuse
  • Domestic Violence
  • Pathways to exiting prostitution, homelessness & drug addiction
  • Staying safe from Sexual Exploitation
  • Language support
  • Access to childcare

Our research partner, The Women’s Budget Group, will be working with us to evaluate this visionary & innovative project for women in the city.

Many migrant women, providing lifesaving care and vital services in the Covid-19 outbreak, risk being left without support by UK immigration rules according to a new report published by the Women’s Budget Group and Coventry Women’s Partnership.

The report, Migrant Women and the Economy, highlights that migrant women are disproportionately represented in ‘key worker’ occupations, working in roles that put their own lives at risk to deliver crucial care. At the same time immigration and social security policies aimed at creating a ‘hostile environment’ mean migrants can be left with no rights to social security or vital services if they are unable to work because of Covid-19.
