Nowhere to Turn 2020
The Nowhere to Turn, 2020 report provides an insight into what happens to those women who are unable to access refuge services after having to give up their homes to escape abuse. Many survivors supported by Women’s Aid’s caseworkers said that since leaving their home they had faced homelessness whilst looking for refuge space. Just under 40% of survivors had been ‘sofa surfing’ – staying temporarily with friends or family while homeless – and 7% (17 women) had been forced to sleep rough.
