Members of the ‘Safespots Team’ joined a delegation of Manchester City Councillors on a trip to London and the South East.
Day One: All delegates met with Helen Pankhurst at the Emmeline Pankhurst statue, situated at the entrance to Victoria Tower gardens. Helen talked about issues that still faced women today and praised the ‘Safespots Team’ for the work they do to empower and support women in their community.
The ‘Safespots Team’ were then hosted in Parliament by Mike Kane, their local MP. A discussion was had around how domestic abuse affects women in Wythenshawe and how Mike could help.
Day Two: The ‘Safespots Team’ travelled south to meet with sculptor Hazel Reeves. Hazel is the currently working on the Emmeline Pankhurst statue, soon to be unveiled in Manchester.
