Being Missed or Missing Out: where next for women and rough sleeping?
On Wednesday 10th November, over 160 professionals came together for our webinar, Being Missed or Missing Out: where next for women and rough sleeping?
This event – the first in a proposed series – sought to interrogate and challenge ‘traditional’ ways of looking at and engaging with ‘rough sleeping.’ It considered the way ‘rough sleeping’ is characterised, counted, and operationalised and how this can affect women. The event shone a light on the work being done by organisations in the sector to create and deliver specialist women-centred responses and considered how women experiencing ‘multiple disadvantage’ and homelessness are currently being catered for.
Along with a contribution from Spring Housing’s Thea Raisbeck, we were joined on the day by representatives from Basis Yorkshire, Leeds City Council, Porchlight (Kent), Standing Together Against Domestic Abuse and Solace Women’s Aid. The event was expertly Chaired by Michaela Campbell, Ending Women’s Homelessness Lead at Homeless Link.
