About this event

Fulfilling Lives in Islington and Camden (FLIC) and The University of York are thrilled to invite you to the launch of our research exploring women's homelessness - Homeless Women in Camden - Improving Strategy, Data and Outcomes (part of 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence).

The nature and extent of women's homelessness has long been misunderstood. As evidenced by new research and lived experiences, we know that women's homelessness occurs at a greater scale than is generally acknowledged realised, and that women's experiences are distinct from those of men. Women are more likely to experience hidden homelessness and these experiences of homelessness appear to be almost universally linked to domestic abuse and other forms of gender-based violence.

Our research aims to build a more accurate picture of women's experiences of homelessness in Camden - drawing on existing and previously unexplored data and the lived experiences to develop an effective, integrated, strategic response. The findings of the report and subsequent recommendations speak to the need for system change in the way homelessness and domestic abuse services are designed, delivered, commissioned and integrated - in Camden, across London, and nationally.

This online event will include:

  • An overview of the research project and its findings from Dr Joanne Bretherton and Professor Nicholas Pleace (Centre for Housing Policy, the University of York)
  • Women with lived experiences of homelessness and multiple disadvantages providing insight into their experiences.
  • Recommendations for how the findings of this research can be used to influence real and lasting change to the way systems and services respond to women's homelessness.
