The Women in Adult and Vocational Education (WAVE) Newsletter for May 2016. This issue includes the WAVE Conference, the Federal Election, membership and the petitions to save Working Women’s Centres. 

Of note:

Save the Working Women’s Centres

The Federal Government has not committed to funding Working Women’s Centres after Christmas 2016. If they were to close, thousands of vulnerable women would have nowhere to turn when they had a problem at work. The petition refers to June this year, but due to the action of so many supporters, there has been an extension of funding until the end of the year. More signatures are needed to show the Government that we care.

Please help by signing the petition, contacting the Minister, or tweet with #saveworkingwomenscentres
