“Every time I come to a Rights of Women conference I come away richer in knowledge and invigorated to put it to use.”
Our timely conferences, workshops and seminars provide an opportunity for practitioners from both the public sector and the community and voluntary sectors to learn about and debate current issues of law and policy affecting women.
We seek to ensure that even the smallest of women’s community organisations are able to access our events, so that they are able to make the voices of the women they work with heard in these debates.
WoMAN Networking Event
Join us for the Women’s Migration and Asylum Network networking event in Manchester.
The event is an opportunity to discuss the current challenges in the provision of immigration advice and support services for migrant women who are experiencing and/or at risk of violence. You will also hear updates on law, policy and practice including the Immigration Bill and residence test for legal aid. This event will also be an opportunity to network with others working with this vulnerable client group and improve your referral and signposting pathways locally.

London Legal Walk
Our staff, volunteers and supporters are taking part in a 10km charity fundraising walk in central London.
We will be walking alongside 10,000 people who care about access to justice, walking 10km in to raise money for free legal advice charities in London and the South East.
Government cuts to legal aid have disproportionately affected women. We are experiencing an increased demand for our legal advice services.
Help us to continue providing this vital resource and ensuring that women have access to justice by donating today or if you would like to join the team, please contact us.
