Homeless Oxfordshire - Women's Project
Homeless Oxfordshire is the largest supported accommodation provider for homeless and vulnerably house people in the county.
They strive to be effective, appropriately challenge perceptions and systems, inspire clients, partners and each other. They are responsive to need and compassionate. Above all, they are brave and will not give up on people that society has left behind.
Homelessness doesn’t have a postcode. Sadly, it’s everywhere. They make sure Oxfordshire is covered, working across the county in close partnership with organisations including all local authorities such as Oxford City Council.
Each night, they accommodate up to 200 people.
They have been supporting people across the county for over 35 years; providing meals, accommodation, training and education, welfare support and helping individuals to develop basic skill to run their own homes.
Key functions & activities offered
Homeless Oxfordshire are experiencing a 40% increase in women using their services. The women accommodated and supported have complex needs including child welfare, family and relationship breakdown, offending behaviour, historic abuse, bereavement, substance use, sexual exploitation, domestic violence, childhood trauma and/or self-harm and interrelating problems that contribute to women’s homelessness and presents barriers to recovery.
All referrals go through Oxfordshire County Council and various services. They do not accept direct referrals.
