Single Homeless Project is committed to amplifying the voices of women experiencing homelessness. We believe it is essential that the next government change the way that women's homelessness is recognised and responded to. 

Yesterday, before Parliament dissolved, alongside Solace, we sent this letter, co-signed by 34 organisations from across England, to a number of then-ministers and shadow ministers. We are calling on the next government to put women's homelessness on the agenda and tackle the systemic inequities that are further disadvantaging homeless women.

Over the next month, the census team will visit women's services across London as part of our campaign, 'Make Women Count.' We will capture women's voices and experiences to reflect back to the new government while also encouraging women experiencing homelessness to have their voices heard and vote in the general election.

Our Head of Multiple Disadvantage Service Transformation, Lucy Campbell, wrote this blog to mark the sending of the letter. It reflects on how far we have come as we campaign to improve provision for women and calls on system leaders and decision-makers to face up to the reality of the challenges women face every day.
