UK and International 2020

The SWC consults with women throughout Scotland around the issues that matter the most to them. Discussions have taken place with women from a variety of different backgrounds and of all ages.

The SWC uses the voices of these women to respond to Scottish and UK Government consultations.

Consultations, Enquiries and Calls for Evidence are one of the key ways in which the SWC communicates its wealth of evidence directly to policy makers. For this reason, our consultation development is at the heart of what we do, as it's the main way we see women's lived experiences being utilised to create positive change.
