This community of practice is for frontline practitioners, service managers and commissioners of single-gender accommodation that excludes men. 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 the design and delivery of single-gender accommodation services. This framework has been designed to support homelessness services to improve their response to women experiencing homelessness: Embedding a Gendered Lens in Homelessness Services: Launch | Homeless Link
This community of practice will provide the space to meet other practitioners, learn how established services respond to women's needs within their service, dicuss ideas for the design of new services and the development of existing services.
