Women’s spaces within homelessness settings: Setting up your service

Research indicates that women experiencing homelessness frequently feel unsafe in mixed-sex homelessness settings; they have often experienced violence and abuse at various stages of their lives, and are at heightened risk of exploitation and violence during periods of homelessness.
