The aim and objectives of the Haringey Employment Project were to support a diverse range of women survivors who had either experienced VAWG, were in receipt of benefits or did not have Recourse to Public Funds, enabling them through work readiness and into employment.
This strategy aims to highlight the crisis of women’s homelessness and propose solutions, focusing on working collaboratively and with innovation and best practice to end homelessness for women. There is a growing recognition of the specific difficulties facing women experiencing homelessness whose needs aren’t being met by current homelessness provision and approaches.
Hear2Change is a five-year project run by Solace Women’s Aid from September 2016 to December 2021. In September 2019 Against Violence and Abuse (AVA) began an independent evaluation of the project, the outcomes of which are outlined in this project evaluation.
Solace Women's Aid and AVA (Against Violence and Abuse)
This toolkit has been produced by Solace in collaboration with Dewis Choice.
For over 40 years, Solace have supported women and children in London to be free from violence and abuse. We provide services for rape crisis, young people, refuge, advocacy, therapy and professional training. In 2019, we began the ‘Visible Women’ project, working closely with the Silver Project (established in 2010) to provide specialist Domestic Violence and Sexual Abuse support for older survivors in London.
In May 2020, Solace set up the Covid-19 Crisis Project to offer 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 was supported by Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime (MOPAC) and the Julia and Hans Rausing Trust.
