Women and Rough Sleeping

St Mungo’s has commissioned researchers from the University of York Centre for Housing Policy, Joanne Bretherton and Nicholas Pleace, to conduct a rapid evidence review exploring women's experiences of rough sleeping. The report presents fresh analysis of data from London and across England, alongside new research with women who have slept rough. Women sleeping rough are at risk of gender-based violence and abuse before, during, and after their time on the streets. Hiding from harm can mean that women are hidden from help and missing from homelessness services and statistics.  Read the report: Women and Rough Sleeping: A Critical Review of Current Research and Methodology
