This morning we were featured on the BBC Radio 4 Today Programme and BBC News, as part of a campaign calling on more support for women leaving prison.

6 in 10 women leaving prison are released with nowhere safe to go, with £46 and a plastic bag full of their things. But today, 60 cross-party MPs and Peers have written to the Government to ensure that female prisoners are given more help to find somewhere to live.

To support the campaign, one Housing for Women resident spoke to BBC Radio 4's Today Programme and explained the impact of our supported housing. Leticia* from our ReUnite programme described her home as a 'little piece of heaven'

You can listen on catch-up here at 3:36, 1:04:39 and 1:22.29, and read more about the campaign here.
