Service Support March 2014

During March, the Consortium worked with women’s organisations delivering frontline services to help them maintain and develop their childcare services. The Consortium met with Early Years and continued to liaise with DSD and other government departments to promote the sustainability of childcare services for women in disadvantaged and rural areas beyond 2015. We also met with Women’s Centre Childcare Fund (WCCF) groups to discuss the topic and are currently gathering information and views from them on the relevant issues.

FWIN held its Inspire 2014 Conference in March, during which the more than 370 women attending received information about the Consortium. The event was an excellent networking opportunity for women's organisations delivering frontline services for women.
