The Government Equalities Office is providing funding for the year-long initiative that will work with some 400 women, provide a platform to ensure their voices are heard and make practical steps towards creating a city that leaves no one behind.

“We want to hear from women with the faintest voices,” said project leader Debra Newrick, speaking at the launch in City Hall on Tuesday.

Bristol Women’s Voice (BWV) will be leading the City Listening Project, which was borne out of the successful Women of Lawrence Hill pilot, a project that focussed on identifying the barriers to employment and training women in the area face.

The project will be undertaken in partnership with communities and local organisations to ensure it is representative and the women involved will be asked to present data at the end, which will be fed back to government policy makers.
