Women’s Regional Consortium

To empower local women in disadvantaged and rurally isolated communities

The Women’s Regional Consortium was formed in October 2013 after a survey carried out by DSD and DARD identified a need for greater support for women in disadvantaged and rural areas.

The Consortium receives funding from both departments and is made up of seven established women’s sector organisations.

Together, we have been working in partnership with statutory and governmental agencies and local women’s organisations, centres and groups to ensure that women on the ground in disadvantaged and rural areas are receiving support to meet their needs and having their views heard.

Please visit the consortium's website to find more about the project.
