    National Council 2 Oct 21

    Women's lives are disproportionately affected by caring responsibilities and engaging with services on behalf of their loved ones.

    Women also make up the largest proportion of the care workforce, which has traditionally been undervalued and underpaid.

    Our National Council on 2nd October will examine the Scottish Government's consultation on the delivery of a National Care Service. Women for Independence will be submitting a response to the consultation, based on the thoughts and opinions given at the event.

    This is your opportunity to affect policy. Your views are crucial in shaping a National Care Service that works for women.

    This online event will be split into two 1-hour sessions (with a break), during which attendees will be spilt into groups looking at the sections of the consultation. A WFI National Committee member will be there to guide you through.

    The consultation document can be found here, if you want to have a look beforehand.

    Join us for this event - or become a member and be part of the movement. Women for Independence events and membership are open to all self-identifying women.


    We are a not-for-profit organisation and all monies raised will be used to fund our research and running costs, as well as to subsidise free tickets, which are available for all our events.

    Although our events help us raise funds, it's just as important to us to provide an opportunity for women to get together and support each other. For this reason, we always offer tickets at various prices.  It’s your decision how much you’d like to contribute.

    You can buy tickets over on our new website: https://www.wfi.scot/event/national-council-2/
