Hi, my name is Lisa and I have recently started at Nottingham Women’s Centre as the Representation and Policy Officer. This is part of an exciting new project called Help through Crisis which is aimed at making a difference in women’s lives through providing welfare rights advice and working in partnership with other charities. My role is to gather evidence about the needs and difficulties that women are facing and to use this to press for changes that will improve women’s lives.
I first came to the Centre over a year ago as a volunteer in our amazing Library so I knew that it would be a brilliant place to work. Everyone here is passionate about supporting women and the environment is friendly and welcoming. You might see me at events collecting information or if you attend any of our focus groups over the coming months. I can’t wait to see what comes out of the research and to start demanding positive change for women.
