Welcome to the July newsletter.

WCHM has been busy during July finalising several of our research reports, meeting with ACT Health about some new work we will be doing in the next few months to provide input to them, and contributing to a range of issues impacting on women in the ACT, including attending the first of 2 consultations by the Commonwealth and Australian Capital Territory (ACT) Governments to inform the development of the Fourth Action Plan 2019-2022 of the National Plan to Reduce Violence against Women and their Children (2010-2022) (the National Plan).  And working on influencing planning in the design of new ACT suburbs to take account of women’s views about safe spaces.

We also received some good news in July about funding and an award.  Read more below!

And it is only 6 weeks to go till 2018 Women’s Health Week 3 – 7 September when we will be sharing a range of information from Jean Hailes for Women’s Health with you.
