We are a charity and housing association and have been providing homes for London’s women for 80 years. The organisation expanded from a ‘job centre’ for women during the Depression in the 1930s to providing accommodation as well as recruitment services. You can read more about how we came to be on the Short History page. Today, the core of our work continues to be supporting women by providing secure, affordable housing and related services, helping our residents make the most of their life chances. We also provide targeted services for women who have suffered domestic abuse, been trafficked or have been released from prison.
