Women’s homelessness matters – women and health

We know that people experiencing homeless have complex health needs and experience significant barriers accessing the healthcare they need, but what about the specific experiences of women?

In this session, we will present findings from peer-led research published in 2020 that highlights the health issues experienced by women and the barriers they face accessing services. We will also explore the importance or peer-led services for women to tackle health inequalities and help them to overcome these barriers.

This session will be chaired by Rachel Brennan, #HealthNow Network Coordinator, Groundswell.

Speakers include:

  • Dr Suzy Solley, Research Manager, Groundswell on the finding of Groundswell’s Women, Homelessness and Health Peer Research project and the value of peer-led research
  • Dr Lucy Potter, Academic GP with the Homeless Health Service/ One25 and University of Bristol- Co-production to improve access to trauma-informed primary care for women with complex needs.
