Supporting women who are homeless

With limited specialist provision, how can services improve their support for women?

Women experiencing homelessness are typically less visible on the streets than men, more likely to be hidden homeless, and more likely to have experienced trauma and abuse both before and during homelessness, including separation from children. This briefing outlines how services can develop a gender-informed approach, in order to improve outcomes for the women they support.
