About Camden Women's Forum

Camden Women’s Forum is working for gender equality in Camden.

The forum brings together a range of experts from across Camden and beyond to discuss complex issues and barriers facing women and girls in the borough. The forum is working directly with women and girls to hear their concerns and experiences, and partnering with employers and businesses, the voluntary sector and services providers to develop practical solutions.

The forum will produce themed reports and make practical, tangible recommendations about how the Council, partners and communities can work together to ensure every woman and girl in Camden has a voice, the chance to live without prejudice or discrimination, and the opportunities they need to succeed.

Impact of Cost of Living Crisis on Women

Camden Women’s Forum third inquiry has looked at the impact of the cost of living crisis on women. Through data analysis and speaking to 100 women in Camden and a range of local and national partner agencies, Camden Women’s Forum have produced a series of local and national recommendations. The report has been launched today (Monday 6 March 2023), to mark International Women’s Day.

Preventing and tackling domestic violence and abuse

The forum’s second inquiry focuses on preventing and tackling domestic violence and abuse in Camden. Reported incidents of domestic violence and abuse have risen during the pandemic, adding more urgency to an already critical situation. The inquiry built on the Council’s domestic abuse policy (2020).

The inquiry worked with survivors of domestic violence and abuse to co-produce the recommendations, and also local and national support organisations, healthcare and probation services, schools and the voluntary and community sector. Camden’s Cabinet approved an additional £400,000 per year in December 2021 to implement these recommendations.

Check back soon for opportunities to get involved in this work.
