  1. One of the issues we’re working to address at Stopcocks Women Plumbers is that there’s simply no data on the number of women in trades jobs.
    If we aren’t counted, we don’t count!
    And we aren’t counted how do we know the size of the problem?

    We do know that 38% of women would prefer to use a trades-woman in their home, given the choice and also that 33% of women would ‘seriously consider’ working in skilled trades if they had their time over again, whereas only 11% of the general population ‘would consider’ trades as a career. Added to the average age of plumbers in UK being 57. Encouraging women into trades is something we need to start urgently! [email protected]
