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. Consequently, most, if not all, best practice guidance and toolkits produced around women’s homelessness repeatedly call for the creation of women-only spaces as a means to encourage women to access services and to provide emotional and physical safety for clients when they do so.
