Notice of Annual General Meeting:
Her Centre will be holding our AGM on the 23rd of May in Clockhouse Community Centre. Our theme this year is engaging women and children in our communities. Councillor Ann-Marie Cousins, Cabinet member for Community Safety, will be our keynote speaker. With our expanded equalities grant Her Centre will be working with local women to run groups that represent some key communities, including Nepalese, Somali and Tamil, and working more with METRO, GAD and Stay Safe East to reach lesbian and bisexual women and disabled women. Our Community Outreach Officer, Julia Ssengooba, will give a brief on how this work will go forward.
Our Children’s Domestic Violence Advocate, Lisa Boston will also speak on her work supporting children who grow up in families where there is abuse, and how she can support them to come to terms with their past and rebuild family relations with their non-abusive parent.
There will be an update on our work for the past year and a review of our audited accounts too. We will also elect our board.
