I welcome the guidance and support that the Women Returners Network offers to women seeking to return to the workforce. Your research has helped identify the attitudes of women returners and their needs and also the value that employers place upon women returners due to their skills and experience. I would like to thank the WRN for their support in the development of the taster days for women returners which were organised by the Women and Equality Unit across the country in the last 12 months. I look forward to hearing about how your work on this important issue develops in the future. 
Best wishes, The Rt Hon Patricia Hewitt MP Secretary of State for Trade and Industry
