How are coordinated responses meeting the needs of women?
The MEAM coalition, AVA, Agenda and St Mungo’s has published Jumping through hoops: How are coordinated responses to multiple disadvantage meeting the needs of women?
Across the country, local areas are developing better coordinated responses for individuals facing multiple disadvantage. Many are part of the national MEAM Approach network or the Big Lottery Fund’s Fulfilling Lives programme.
A minority of the beneficiaries in these local areas are women. While there has been progress on gender and trauma informed approaches across the sectors mentioned, little is known about how general services in these areas are responding to women’s needs or how women-specific services, such as domestic and sexual violence services, are involved in coordinated approaches.
