Make your voice count and be part of a resolution process the WI is proud of. Suffolk East members are encouraged to attend our WHICH RESOLUTION meeting. Doors open at 9.30am with coffee for a prompt 10am start.
Tickets are £8 each to include a soup lunch. Don’t forget: Each WI can cover the ticket costs for their members, so why not attend as a group and share the information at your next monthly meeting?
These are the four shortlisted resolutions. Each WI member will be able to vote for the one she would like put forward for the NFWI AGM next June.
1. Dental Health Matters
There is a chronic shortage of NHS Dentists and people are suffering health issues as a result. The NFWI calls on the Government to increase investment in the training and retention of dentists and to review the current inadequate NHS contracts in order to ensure everyone can access an NHS dentist wherever they live.
2. Impacts of poor housing conditions
Poor housing can have a deleterious effect on human health and wellbeing, safety and quality of life and can disproportionately affect the most vulnerable groups in society.
The NFWI calls on the UK Government to boost housing standards and regulations, increase funding for housing renovations, increase the supply of affordable and secure housing and strengthen collaboration with local authorities, housing associations and other relevant stakeholders to develop strategies that address local housing challenges.
3. Say ‘no’ to gambling advertising
Harm caused by excessive gambling is a global problem. Some countries are already addressing this by banning advertising. The NFWI calls on members, the government, regulators, the NHS, educationalists and gambling charities to work together towards achieving a complete ban on gambling advertising. This will reduce gambling harm, save the NHS money, protect family relationships and decrease the number of suicides, around 400 per annum at present.
4. Improving Outcomes for Women in the Criminal Justice System
There is an urgent need to radically reform decision making in respect of women in the criminal justice system and in particular, pregnant women and women with children. We urge cross government collaboration to the deliver on the 2018 female offender strategy by setting goals, robust governance and performance measures to reduce the number of women who have committed non-violent offences from being imprisoned.
