Accommodation Development Manager

Safe Homes for Women is a new project which aims to help women who experience severe and multiple
disadvantage to secure suitable, safe and supported accommodation which meets their needs
effectively.

New Dawn New Day works to improve the lives of women who present with complex needs which often
will include experience of domestic abuse, mental health difficulties, sexual exploitation, trafficking,
drug and alcohol dependency, removal of children into the social care system and/or a history of
offending.

A key focus of New Dawn New Day’s work is supporting women who are referred to us by Probation
(either on release from prison or serving a community order) or by the Police under an “Out of Court
Disposal”. We work with over 250 women a year and of these 68% are either homeless or inadequately
housed and 83% are victims of domestic abuse.

When women present with complex needs, it is often difficult to secure and maintain suitable
accommodation due to the perceived risks associated with offending behaviour, mental health
difficulties and drug/alcohol dependency. The Safe Homes for Women project is a new initiative which
seeks to maximise suitable accommodation opportunities for women in Leicestershire.

We aim to achieve this by:

  • Working with existing accommodation providers to support their capacity to work safely and confidently with women who present with complex needs. We will do this through offering training and consultancy in trauma-informed practice
  • Developing new supported accommodation opportunities through developing strategic partnerships and securing suitable properties to let to women
