Report published: A Sense of Safety - Trauma-informed Approaches for Women

Posted 10.01.2020

Centre for Mental Health and Agenda, the Alliance for Women and Girls at Risk, have produced A Sense of Safety: Trauma-informed Approaches for Women, which explores how trauma-informed approaches are being implemented by public services including women’s centres, prisons and mental health services.

There are strong links between traumatic experiences and poor mental health and the need for public services to be trauma-informed has been repeatedly demonstrated, for instance in our report earlier this year. A Sense of Safety summarises the findings of interviews and site visits to a range of public services for women, including substance misuse, homelessness, mental health, the criminal justice system, and domestic and sexual abuse and exploitation.


BBO is having a significant impact on individual lives, supporting people to increase their confidence, independence and achieve their employment aspirations.
