There are women who are not in permanent safe or secure homes in New Zealand. Their houses are damp, cold and unsafe. The violence and poverty these women face means they are highly transient. As a result, they often have poor mental and physical health. This study investigates why some women are without permanent, safe and secure accommodation and what can be done to minimise the risk of female homelessness in New Zealand.
