We have been providing specialist services to women experiencing, or at risk of homelessness, for many years. In this time we’ve seen first hand the increased challenges, vulnerabilities and risks women experience because of their gender.
We’ve also been privileged to be part of womens incredible journeys where resilience, tenacity, determination and humour, has kept them standing.
Run by women, for women, we’re proud to be housing & homing 55 women every single day & night through our emergency and supported accommodation services. And we’re there for so many more through our Street Teams, Hubs, outreach teams, Housing First and SCS Homes.
We have four women’s supported accommodation sites (39 beds) across Glasgow. This includes two sites (with a total of 16 flats) where women can live independently in their own flats but access 24 hour support from our team who also have a flat on site. We also have an eight bedroomed townhouse, all en suite, with communal living areas and a 15 bedroomed townhouse, all en suite, with communal living areas used for emergency accommodation.
We provide support at a womens emergency accommodation shelter in Edinburgh. There are bedrooms for 12 women and we provide support 7 days a week. The only route into this accommodation is through our Street Team. This space saves lives. Many of the women we support are fleeing horrific circumstances.
We have four self-contained bungalows promoting independent living to four females. our team also have a bungalow on site. The service provides intensive housing support to women who have experienced homelessness, trauma, mental health and addiction issues inclusive of challenging behaviours and chaotic lifestyles.
