Anti-violence to End VAWG

2021

Petition

Sign here

In 2021 WEP East Kent focus is on EVAW

We will be working with the steering committee and local groups on a month by month recognition of the varieties of harm that comes to women in East Kent. Keep an eye on this page or email eastkent@womensequality.org.uk

WE ARE LAUNCHING WHITE RIBBON CAMPAIGN:

WE are calling on the Kent local governments to to urgently release additional funding directly to specialist services and to agree on a long term funding settlement to guarantee everyone who flees abuse can access the support they need.

Across Kent, women and children are being turned away from refugees and specialist services with 3 in 10 being ethnic minorities. There are not enough beds,  not enough accessible spaces for disabled women and not enough specialist support for LGBT+ or minoritised women. However, just 5% of the emergency funding for abuse services this year has gone to specialist services, and the Government has made no moves to give domestic abuse services the sustainable, long term funding they need. We can and must do better.

Equal Health care during c19

2021

Petition

WE raised our voices by producing the #LeftOffTheList petition, and WE truly made a difference! 

 

On 24th February, the Government announced that some people with learning disabilities would be added to the vaccine priority list. This is progress, but it’s nowhere near enough. There are still tens of thousands of people with disabilities across the country who face a far higher risk of severe illness or death than the general population who will not receive priority access to the vaccine. 

 

Disabled and chronically ill people have borne the brunt of the COVID-19 virus. 60% of COVID deaths have been of disabled people, and many in the disabled community have had to spend most of the last year shielding. However, at every turn, they - the worst affected - have been forgotten or omitted from the Government response. 

Key campaign:

WE are advocating for everyone at risk receives priority access to the Covid vaccine and raise in wages of care workers.

 

Join the WEP Disability Caucus - a group of disabled members & allies to campaign for disability rights and representation.

Bring the stroke unit back to Margate’s QEQM hospital!

Ensure all 7 District General Hospitals in Kent and Medway, including Margate, Canterbury and Ashford, can be reached for acute care for stroke within 30 minutes, as they can in London.

Invest in better pay, conditions and most importantly recruitment incentives for NHS staff, improve the ambulance service, and ensure more doctors, more nurses, more therapists.

Invest in better care for patients in East Kent, less on managers’ salaries, management consultants and reorganisations.

Intersectional education

2021

Petition

COMING SOON

This campaign will start in November 2020 and continue for as long as it is needed. I am making a commitment to enact all my press and campaigns with a focus on intersectionality. I want to see education become an intersectional publication of history and facts of all the communities in the UK. I think it is far gone time when you could justify a curriculum that did not include all intersectionalities; age, class, disability, gender, race, religion and sexuality.
