Description: The Bishop of Gloucester, the Rt Revd Rachel Treweek, talks about her actions to #BeBoldForChange, helping mark International Women's Day 2017 on March 8.
Bishop Rachel has been developing a partnership with The Nelson Trust, a charity that runs an award winning Women’s Centre in Gloucester, recently visited by the Duchess of Cambridge. It works with the most disadvantaged women in our communities, offering both practical and emotional support.
The three bedroomed house will provide a safe home for women who have had traumatic life experience, including being victims of violent crime, domestic abuse, substance misuse, mental health difficulties and potential contact with the criminal justice system, including being in prison. It is estimated that over a year up to 12 women and their children will benefit from this home.
