Homelessness charity St Mungo’s is creating more women-only shelter spaces and improving its services for female domestic abuse victims.

On International Women’s Day, the charity is launching its three-year women’s strategy – which will see staff work to improve their own services as well as campaigning to influence policy and protect funding for specialist services, such as that which support women recovering from sexual violence.

The latest figures from St Mungo’s show that 642 women sleep rough on any one night in England.
