Examples of recent casework
Our tenacious and dedicated caseworkers Sophie and Chiola help women suffering from domestic violence find safe accommodation by talking to councils about their cases. Where necessary they accompany women to meetings with professionals such as council staff and police. They are kind and supportive.
Below is a small sample of the women we have helped in 2020 and 2021
raped while in temporary accommodation but the Council told her she was not vulnerable
enough to move. After we talked to multiple professionals, the council agreed to move A to
new temporary accommodation. We are supporting A to make a complaint to the council.
We worked with the council who allocated her a room in temporary accommodation, however this proved to be unsafe and we asked for her to be moved. The council moved her to a hotel with no cooking or washing facilities. We helped her submit a housing application and a complaint and the council has now accepted it has responsibility for finding her permanent housing.
