St Mungo’s Women’s Strategy is designed to address the ways in which women experience homelessness differently from men, equipping us to achieve equally positive outcomes with our female clients.

Our biggest challenge is creating an environment of physical and psychological safety for our female clients. Women face disproportionate risk of harm from people they love and trust as well as the dangers of homelessness. We know that expecting women to thrive in traditional, male-dominated homelessness services is not good enough.

Our ambitious new strategic aims are designed to ensure that each of our female clients has a safe place to live and has every reason to feel safe in our services. Establishing safety is the foundation for recovery and the only way that we can successfully achieve the positive outcomes that our female clients deserve.
