The Housing For Women Trust


"A Trust That Works To Promote Housing For Women"

The Housing For Women Trust believes that women in poor housing face physical violence, sexual exploitation and other forms of abuse.

The objectives of the Trust are to:
reduce the risks women face
support women in obtaining alternatives to the present facilities available to them
enable them to change the circumstances which disempower them.

We believe that initiatives involving shared housing and alternatives to the existing concept of living arrangements, will make a difference to our community, to the lives of women who will be able to live in a supportive environment that promotes personal growth.

The trust is working alongside other organisations in providing safe housing for women.

We have taken the initiative in pioneering long-term communal housing for women.

This creative approach to housing provides solutions that would otherwise not exist; making a difference to our community.


Communal Living Provides:

  • security
  • mutual support
  • financial stability
  • a sense of belonging
