A Strategy for Ending Women’s Homelessness in London

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.

SOS Toolkit: Supporting Older Survivors

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.

The Covid-19 Crisis Project

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.
