Manchester Women and the Northern Powerhouse – free workshop and talk Sat, 11 Jun at 10:00 By: UK Women’s Budget Group

New powers to local authorities, millions of pounds of investment and new elected mayors – but will any of these things work for women in the north? Tell the Women’s Budget Group about what YOU want the northern powerhouse to do:

– more affordable child care?

– better apprenticeships for women?

– better flexible working and part time job opportunities?

This event is an opportunity for you to speak directly to those holding the purse strings. We are delighted to have Kate Green MP Shadow Minister for Women and Equalities joining us for the day. We will also be joined by representatives from local and regional authorities in the northern powerhouse who will talk about their plans for the region.

No prior knowledge is required – come along and listen, learn and contribute. Make sure the northern powerhouse is not just a boys club – get your voices heard!

Can’t afford the travel? Let us know and we can help. Got kids? Bring them along or let us help pay for your child care. Have accessibility requirements? We can help with them too. Get in contact with

All genders are welcome at this event and it is child friendly.

We would like to thank our funders the Amiel and Melburn Trust for making this event possible.

Saturday, 11 June 2016 from 10:00 to 17:00 (BST)
