The Rebuilding Shattered Lives campaign is a national 18 month campaign to raise awareness of women’s homelessness, to showcase good practice and innovation and, ultimately, to improve services and policy for the future.
At St Mungo’s Broadway, we want to create a comprehensive showcase of innovative and successful practice and policy in order to drive lasting change for women in need.
St Mungo’s Broadway provides a bed and support to more than 2,500 people a night who are either homeless or at risk, and works to prevent homelessness, helping about 25,000 people a year.

For this campaign we identified nine key areas which are often significant issues for homeless women and where a lack of access to appropriate services can have a real impact on their ability to recover from homelessness.
These issues form the nine inquiry themes for the Rebuilding Shattered Lives campaign. Each theme has been investigated over a two month period during which time individuals, statutory and voluntary organisations from across the UK were invited to submit their examples of effective services and promising new ideas.
We also convened a group of Experts, each with exceptional levels of knowledge and experience, to support the campaign across these different themes
Over the 18 month campaign we heard from organisations, academics, front-line workers and especially women themselves, about how best to prevent women’s homelessness and support their recovery.
