Amplifying Bristol Women’s Voice: The Caring Economy Manifesto 

This campaign is a call to action, directed towards employers, the West of England Combined Authority (WECA), Bristol City Council, and national government bodies. This campaign aims to improve life for carers in many vital areas such as public services, training, skills development, transport, environmental sustainability, and addressing poverty and discrimination. 

In the lead-up to the 2024 local and national elections, the campaign champions the voices of women, caregivers, care workers, and those who may require care. We aim to spotlight these critical concerns before policymakers, employers, and health and social care providers by posing fundamental questions: 

  • What value have you placed on the caring economy? 
  • Where is care on your priority list for the future? 
  • What can you do to support a caring economy? 
  • How will you ensure this commitment becomes a reality?
