Jude McKee's Recent Activity
"St Mungo’s North London Women’s Hostel delivers a specific service for vulnerable homeless women. Staff at the 29-bed service work with local agencies to provide intensive, holistic support designed to help women make a sustainable recovery from homelessness and move towards independent living.
The North London Women’s Hostel is designed for women with high needs, who often face a number of issues that both cause, and have been caused by, homelessness. Staff are trained to help clients address issues related to involvement in prostitution and domestic abuse; almost half of the women at the project have been involved in prostitution and 62 per cent have experienced violence or abuse from a partner or family member.
The project has an on-site complex needs worker, who helps clients to access and sustain treatment for substance use and mental health problems."
