Report on the impact of spending cuts on older women in Coventry

‘Getting off lightly or feeling the pinch? A human rights and equality impact assessment of the spending cuts on older women in Coventry’ was published by Coventry Women’s Voices and the Centre for Human Rights in Practice at the University of Warwick in July 2012.

The report concludes that taken together, the cuts to public services, and cuts to welfare benefits, pose a serious risk to the mental and physical health of the poorest and most vulnerable older women.
