From our blog

Invest to prevent VAWG Dec 4: Blog by Robyn Moffat-Wall, Training and Engagement Officer & Heather Williams, SWBG's Training Lead about women's experiences of public sector debt.

What SWBG would like to see in the Autumn Statement Nov 21: In times of insecurity and increasing levels of poverty and destitution (JRF 2023), comments about what may be included in the Chancellor’s statement leave little room to aspire to (Binns, 2023). While many issues remain devolved, public spending and tax issues as well as block grants, have a great impact on Scotland. This blog will detail what we’d like to see in the upcoming statement, especially in relation to advancing gender equality across the UK.
