This week we were delighted to host Bristol’s mayor Marvin Rees at our drop-in. He visited along with Cllr Helen Godwin, the Cabinet Member for Women, Children and Young People.
On our previous visit to City Hall, the Mayor had challenged us to put together ‘five asks’ for change to improve the lives of vulnerable women in Bristol. We worked with the women to put these together and it was brilliant to have two of the women involved. Clio (from Pause Bristol) and Karena presented to them on the day.
"I’m here for the women who don’t have a voice."- Karena
Each ask was listened to carefully and actions were laid out to move things forwards. From feeding these needs into commissioning processes, to inviting us to present to the Health and Wellbeing Board that the Mayor chairs.
"It’s great to be at One25 today and for my part I really see this as part of an ongoing relationship."- Mayor Marvin Rees
