The booking deadline for this event has passed. If you would like to attend, please email info@engender.org.uk.

In partnership with Close the Gap, we are holding a discussion session for women who have used employment support services.

The Scottish Government will soon have new powers over employment support and so there is an opportunity to make our voices heard.

We want to hear your experiences; what you think doesn’t work and what you think would better enable you to enter work which is right for you and your circumstances.

The Scottish Government is also running a national conversation on Creating a Fairer Scotland and this session will feed into that process.

The event is free to attend, and all women who have used employment support services are welcome. Arrive from 10.45 for tea and coffee, and will finish with lunch at 1.30pm.

The venue is accessible, we can provide travel costs and an interpreter if needed, and support for childcare costs is available. Please let us know your needs when you book. All participants will receive £15 in recognition of the time they have given.

The booking deadline for this event has passed. If you would like to attend, please email info@engender.org.uk.
