Contribute: Case Studies Wanted from Unison Women

22Jan09

We’d like to flag up an opportunity for you to get some exposure for you project or initiative to help women, Unison are calling for their female members to get in touch and share their stories and experiences.

UNISON Press and Broadcasting Office is looking for members working in charities and voluntary sector projects, local government, health or education to come forward and talk about the work that they do. We are particularly looking for people who work to help women, for example to help them find housing if they need it, to cope with domestic abuse, or work to tackle trafficking, to talk about the problems women face, and what workers in the public, charity and voluntary sector do to help them cope with these problems.

So, If you, or anyone that you know is running an interesting new project or initiative to help women, or have a particularly interesting story to tell then we would like to know about it. We might ask for you to be interviewed in a women’s magazine, or to be featured in your local paper, but you will be able to say yes or no at any stage.

Case studies from members really help us to bring to life the real difference that people working in the public, charity and voluntary sector make to our society. We have already seen job cuts in the public, charity and voluntary sector across the country, and more are on the cards. This comes at a time when there are higher demands being placed on services such as social housing, help for the homeless, debt counselling and take up of free school meals. As the recession kicks in this is only set to get worse, so it is important to showcase the vital work that you do to help the women in your community.

If you feel you have an interesting story to tell, or would like to find out more details, please get in touch with Sophie Madden at UNISON Press Office on 0207 551 1555 or by email on s.madden@unison.co.uk
