This community of practice is for frontline practitioners, service managers and commissioners of mixed-gender accommodation. This may include supported accommodation, night hostels and other forms of emergency accommodation.
In this forum we will consider how to apply Homeless Link's new 'Gendered Lens Framework' to mixed-gender accommodation services. This framework has been designed to support homelessness services to improve their response to women experiencing homelessness.

This community of practice will provide the space to meet other practitioners, learn what other services are already doing to respond to women's needs within mixed-gender accommodation, and discuss ideas for how to support women effectively.
