Agenda and AVA (Against Violence and Abuse) launched our research Mapping the Maze, which maps service provision specifically for women facing homelessness, substance misuse, poor mental health, offending and complex needs generally. The three seminars, held in London, Manchester and Bristol, explored the findings of the research and invited responses from officials.
Agenda’s launch research, Hidden Hurt, revealed that one in 20 women in England has experienced extensive physical and sexual violence as a child and as an adult. These women face very high rates of mental and physical ill-health, disability, homelessness, addiction, and poverty. This research seminar provided an opportunity to explore the research, and the links between extensive abuse and disadvantage in women’s lives.
