Service users invited to Speak Up in the Mid West

Posted on November 20, 2013

speak up cafe logo

Domestic and sexual violence is an alarming problem in our country. Services are there to help but are they good enough?, asks the Mid West Regional Advisory Committee on Violence Against Women.

They are seeking feedback on services through consultations with people whose lives have been affected by domestic abuse or sexual violence. I'm inviting service users and community members to an informal Speak-Up Cafe, where participants can tell organisations how they can improve their services, meet the services, help make a difference, and of course enjoy a cuppa.

Participant organisations include Gardai, city and county councils; health, social work, refuge, rape crisis, and legal services and many more.

Limerick, Clare and Kerry Women's Networks have come together to form a regional structure within the National Collective of Community Based Women's Networks (NCCWN) to give a stronger voice to women in their region. As part of this initiative they are organising an event to officially launch the South and Mid West Region NCCWN and to provide a networking opportunity for women from the region to meet.

The theme for the event is 'Recession, where are the women?' "Women have been disproportionately affected by the policies imposed by National Government Departments", stated Elaine D'Alton of the Clare Women's Network, "this is clear in the way the cuts have been implemented".
