Home Instead Senior Care is proud to announce its inclusion in a major publication to celebrate the centenary of women gaining the right to vote in the UK.
This year marks 100 years since Parliament passed the Representation of the People Act 1918 which was a package of electoral reforms that extended the vote to women for the first time.
As part of these celebrations, publisher St James’s House has partnered with the History of Parliament Trust to produce their official commemorative album for the Vote100 anniversary, entitled Voice & Vote.
At Home Instead Senior Care, we are proud to join the celebrations as an editorial partner as equality underpins everything we do at the company.
Katie Furey, who leads Home Instead’s Business Performance Partners team, is a strong advocate for equality and women’s rights and a member of the Women Leaders Association.
“It is important to reflect back on such an important time in history when women won the right to vote,” she said.
“This was a time which will no doubt resonate with many of our older clients who have experienced the early aftermath of women being able to vote. Vote 100 is also a time to celebrate some of the fantastic things our women leaders are doing now.”
At Home Instead Senior Care, around two thirds of the network of 190 offices are women.

St James’ House Founder and CEO, Richard Freed, added: “Equality is one of the most important values underpinning our society, and we are extremely excited to be producing this official commemorative album for the Trust. We are also very pleased to be working with Home Instead Senior Care as one of our profiled organisations.”
The book will be officially launched at Westminster Abbey on June 27th.
