North East Women’s Forum
NEWF is a non-political party organisation whose main focus is centred upon raising gender equality and participation in the decision making process involved in all aspects of life within the region from social and cultural to political and economic.
Their general aim and objective are stated as follows:
Specifically the Women’s forum supports the introduction of an elected Regional Assembly which will listen and respond to women. Inclusion and equality should be central to the assembly’s culture and should ensure women play an equal role.
After the successful achievement of a directly elected North East assembly the Women’s Forum plans to continue to exists as a monitoring, networking, co-ordinating and facilitating organisation, communicating with women and women’s groups so that decision making will involve as many women as possible.
