Finally, after three long years, we are hosting our Annual Conference in Leamington Spa and the President and Management Committee look forward to welcoming you from Friday 25th November to Sunday 27th November. The conference is the main focus of NCW policy making and provides an important forum for NCW and NCYW members to meet and debate key issues. It promises to be a busy, absorbing and interesting weekend where your voice will count.

Our theme this year is ‘Women’s Welfare’ and our exciting speakers will focus on Women’s safety and Women’s physical health, mental health and wellbeing.  

Our speakers include Eliza Hatch, founder of ‘Cheer up luv’ a renowned photo series and platform retelling accounts of street harassment. Eliza’s focus is on taking back control and reclaiming the space.

We will be joined by Emma Daniell, Warwickshire Deputy Police Crime Commissioner and Yvonne Champion, Local Street Pastor.

Friday evening’s after dinner speaker promises to be fascinating. Tori James is an inspiring motivational speaker. The first Welsh woman to climb Mount Everest, she also completed the Polar Challenge: unmissable!

On Saturday our panel will include Tracey Smith discussing the use of complementary therapies for self-balancing and healing; Louise Corbett, MIND community trainer and mental health practitioner; Alice Brooks reflecting on women’s health and her own experiences; and Rachel Charlton-Dailey award winning editor, talking about her experiences as a person with disabilities.

And we are delighted to announce that we will be joined via Zoom by Dame Lesley Regan, Women’s Health Ambassador for England and Professor of Obstetrics and Gynaecology at Imperial College London.

On Saturday evening we will welcome Hedli Niklaus, MIND ambassador and Archers’ actor [Kathy Perks] as our after dinner speaker.
