Commonweal Housing

Black and minoritized women face multiple barriers to safe and secure housing, including being at higher risk of experiencing domestic violence. Specialist organisations can provide trauma-informed housing support to victims of racial and gender-based violence – but with shrinking resources and skyrocketing demand, it’s become harder than ever to house the women who need it most.

In this episode of Locked Out, we’ll be asking Christina Ioannou and Gabriela Quevedo of Latin American Women's Aid (LAWA) why survivors of colour are so often prevented from accessing the housing they need, and how small expert charities can be better supported to serve their needs.
