Solace Multiple Disadvantage

Woman on steps
Providing specialist, tailored services for women with multiple disadvantages and needs.

We support women who face multiple issues in their lives, which can include significant mental health and/or problematic substance use, exiting prostitution, potential involvement in the Criminal Justice system leading to additional barriers in finding and maintaining housing and/or No Recourse to Public Funds, with finding safe accommodation and getting their immigration status regularised.

Our specialist multiple disadvantage refuge in Camden offers 24-hour support to women with mental health needs and problematic substance use.

The Women’s Safe Engagement and Recovery (WiSER) project targets women who find it very hard to access/engage with support and who are facing severe and multiple disadvantage. The project is delivered in partnership with Against Violence and Abuse (AVA), Fulfilling Lives Islington and Camden (FLIC), Hopscotch, IMECE Women’s Centre, NIA and Women at the Well using assertive outreach in trauma and psychologically informed way.

Our Housing First Projects in Islington and Westminster also support women with multiple disadvantages. 


Thank you (advocate) for supporting me... I am a free woman now. Thanks a lot for your effort. You're the person who gave me hope in life.
