The closing date for this consultation been extended and is now Friday 16th October 2020. 

As yet we are unsure how things are going to progress in terms of the ability to hold focus group sessions.  If these are possible over the coming weeks and months Siobhán will organise a number of sessions to discuss the issues with PIP.  In the meantime if any women’s centres or Consortium partners wish to make a contribution or know of any women who would be willing to take part in a telephone interview as part of this consultation please contact Siobhán with the details.
