The Covid-19 Crisis Project offers safe crisis accommodation with specialist support to women and children fleeing domestic abuse and other forms of violence against women and girls (VAWG), across London during the Covid-19 pandemic. The project is supported by Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime (MOPAC) and the Julia and Hans Rausing Trust.
The project is coordinated by Solace Women’s Aid with support for women with no recourse to public funds provided by partners Southall Black Sisters. The project provides women with crisis accommodation for three months to enable them to flee domestic abuse/ VAWG during the Covid-19 pandemic. During their time at the project women will be offered therapeutic support as well as support from specialist refuge workers. There will be vital resettlement support provided to women to move onto appropriate accommodation at the end of the crisis period.
