We are proud to have funded the Women’s Budget Group Report - The Female Face of Poverty: examining the causes and consequences of economic deprivation for women.

The report was launched at the House of Lords on the 18th July and provides essential insights into addressing the causes and consequences of poverty for women.

The launch event was hosted by Baroness (Ruth) Lister of Burtersett and speakers included:

This is one of a series of reports that the Smallwood Trust is funding and which will be published in collaboration with the Women’s Budget Group and the Coventry Women’s Partnership. The Coventry Women’s Partnership is a project funded by the Smallwood Trust which brings together frontline women’s organisations in Coventry that work on employability, health, legal rights and domestic and sexual violence to improve the support that they give women. The Women’s Budget Group is working with these organisations to carry out research into the main issues facing their service users.
