Key Messages:

  • Experiences of homelessness are different for women, girls and gender-diverse people.
  • Homelessness services are gendered which means they are designed to address the needs of single adult males.
  • Women and gender-diverse people are overrepresented in homeless populations, but their experiences are frequently invisible and therefore overlooked by formal data and reporting tools.
