Successful resolutions then become mandates and form the basis of campaigns in the years ahead. The four short-listed resolutions this year are: Increasing Organ Donation - Campaign against Female Genital Mutilation - Provision of Non-Acute Hospital Beds - Funding for Women's Centres to Cater for the Specific needs of Vulnerable Women at Risk of Offending.
