From our blog

Scottish Women's Budget Group responding to the Resource Spending Review Jun 14: Last month’s resource spending review presented a stark picture for Scotland’s budget over the coming years. We welcome the fact that health, social care and social security have been prioritised as these are all areas that can have an impact on gender inequality. Measures such as the Scottish Child Payment and changes to Carers Allowance will help address women’s poverty.

Women's experiences of childcare shared through our survey Jun 8: This is the second blog in our series by Heather Williams looking at what women told us earlier this year when we conducted a survey to find out more about their local public spending priorities, impact of the cost of living crisis and experiences of child and social care.
