Peace of Mind – An evaluation of Refuge Access for All

As a response to the increasing number of women coming into refuges with mental health and drug and alcohol issues, Solace looked at how we could provide a more inclusive response to women’s needs and recovery from the trauma they had experienced. The Refuge Access for All project was established to improve our response. At the heart of this was the creation of a Psychologically Informed Environment (PIE) across Solace Refuges.

Tallawah: A briefing paper on black and ‘minority ethnic’ women and girls organising to end violence against us.

This paper seeks to provide a framework for understanding the nature, and the importance of, specialist organisations which are led by Black and ‘minority ethnic’ (BME) women and which work to address al forms of violence against BME women and girls. We have deliberately chosen to speak in terms of ‘us’ and ‘we’, as recognition that violence against women and girls is widespread and devastating in its effects; and has direct and indirect impacts on the lives of all women and girls.
