Bristol Women’s Voice is a charity working to make women’s equality in Bristol a reality. We make sure that women’s voices have been heard and their concerns acted upon when key decisions are taken in the city. We work to increase awareness of women’s rights and to make sure services meet women’s needs. BWV brings women together to share ideas and experiences, support campaigns and celebrate success so that together we can make Bristol a showcase for women’s involvement, empowerment and equality.
The Government Equalities Office (GEO), has awarded BWV funding to work with women in Bristol who face multiple barriers to achieving their potential. The project will also identify these barriers and ways to overcome them and to share this information with the government and local organisations such as the West of England Combined Authority and Bristol City Council to inform policy and actions.
The project will involve working with organisations that work with the most marginalised women (as defined by GEO) this includes women who are: homeless, working as street sex workers, refugees, disabled, women from particular groups with lower employment rates such as Bangladeshi, Somali and women with few educational qualifications. BWV will contract up to 10 organisations who will run facilitated discussions with groups of women to identify their specific barriers and actions to address them. The project will provide training for the facilitators and for local women to interview women who are not part of groups to identify their issues.
BWV are seeking an experienced self-employed Research Analyst who will provide input into the first phase of the project including working with the Project Manager and Evaluation Consultant to finalise the templates to be used for discussion groups and individual conversations. The analyst will support and input into the training of facilitators and researchers. The analyst is expected to review the templates, session structure and adjust the templates following feedback from the pilot sessions, making sure that any gaps in the groups of women we are reaching are addressed and to ensure that the information gathered is meeting the aims of the project.
