Like to play with words? So do we! Come hang out with our poet-in-residence and have a go at some writing games, techniques and activities – or just curl up with a cup of tea and a book!

The sessions run weekly on Wednesdays from 5 December between 10am and noon – and will carry on into the new year, too. Spread the word!

A Home of Her Own, women’s experiences of housing and homelssness
Oct 3 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
When the Women’s Budget Group published their A Home of Her Own, Housing & Women report in July 2019, their findings were stark. The report found housing to be unaffordable to the majority of women in every UK county. Across England as a whole average rents take 43% of women’s median earnings aompared to 28% of men’s. Women now need over 12 times their annual salaries to be able to buy a home in England, while men need just over eight times of theirs. Women make up 60% of housing benefit claimants and so are being disproportionately affected by public
