Busy year for Women’s Voice

2019 has been a busy year for Women’s Voice. Thanks to a grant from the Tampon Tax Fund, via Sussex Community Foundation, the group has been running a project entitled Finding Our Voices. And as this project draws to a close, Women’s Voice has received another grant, this time from Rosa, the UK Fund for Girls and Women, to run a trailblazing programme that will make it easier for migrant and refugee women to access health provision. Ann Kramer, chair of Women’s Voice, explains what’s been going on.
