Housing for Women

Housing for Women acts as both a housing association and a charity; providing homes and related services to empower women to make the most of the opportunities available to them.

Founded in 1934, the charity now provides a number of specialist services for some of the most vulnerable women and their children in the London area. Some have suffered domestic abuse, been trafficked for exploitation or have just been released from prison, and Housing for Women supports their integration back into society.

Did you know...

  • Housing for Women has been providing domestic violence services, refuge accommodation, floating support and a telephone hotline to women in need for 40 years now; giving invaluable support to women who need it in a non invasive way.

  • The Re-Unite project supports mothers leaving prison and has improved re-offending rates dramatically to a level of less than 2%. The national average number of women who re-offend within a year of release is 50% which shows just how successful the project has been.

  • The Re-Place project supports women who have been trafficked to the UK for exploitation, and it is the only project of its kind in London. The project provides second stage accommodation and support.

  • The charity also challenges the inequalities faced by women at a higher level through campaigning.

All of the above projects provide a tailored combination of both suitable housing and in-depth support, as well as dedicated Children's Workers to ensure every need is met.
