Our Devon group are very involved in their local community. They are signed up to the Devon Strategic Partnership Joint Declaration for Equality and members currently have gender equality reference group status with Devon County Council and the Devon and Cornwall Constabulary.

A Fawcett Devon member was previously appointed to the Devon and Cornwall Police and crime panel, which is responsible for holding the new police and crime Commissioner to account. This very active group is always looking for more members, so get in touch today!

Fawcett Devon teamed up with the Parliament Project and held a 2-hour workshop that trains/encourages women to get involved in politics and campaigning across all parties. 

We explored how to become an MP/Councillor, where and when to run, different pathways that some current MPs/Councillors have taken, looked at issues holding women back in their political pathways and encouraged participants to identify their own next steps. 

We encouraged women to come forward to show interest in the district council elections in Devon in 2019 and for positions on parish and town councils. We see these as important pathways to a career in Parliament and to creating change for women in our community.
