WRDA regularly responds to consultations on policies being proposed by government. We concentrate on issues that will have a direct impact on women or on the women’s sector. Click here to read our Policy Consultations.
WRDA is a member of the Women’s ad hoc Policy Group, which is comprised of a diverse range of organisations, individuals and trade unions who are concerned with influencing relevant government policies with the aim of promoting gender equality. Our ‘Women’s Manifesto Elections 2011: Northern Ireland Assembly and Local Government’ has been endorsed by a wide range of organisations and we will continue to lobby political parties on the issues raised by the Manifesto.
