York Housing Association

Women's Housing Project

The Women's Housing Project provides medium term supported accommodation for single women who have experienced domestic abuse. It should be noted that it is not a refuge.  The project, based in the city centre, consists of 6 one bedroom self contained flats.  Each has its own kitchen, living room, bedroom and bathroom.  A cooker, fridge freezer, carpets and curtains are provided. One of the flats is fully wheelchair accessible.

The project is staffed by a Housing Support Worker who will provide each tenant with two hours personal support each week. Our aim is to increase independent living skills such as budgeting, debt management, claiming benefits, emotional support and accessing other agencies.

Tenancies are for a minimum of six months and can last for up to two years. Support Plans focus on achieving outcomes, with special emphasis on longer term housing.


Referrals from the Independent Domestic Abuse (IDAS) team will be considered as a priority for single women who have experienced domestic violence. Other agencies may make referrals for vulnerable women who would benefit from a supported environment.

The accommodation is not suitable for children.
