On 6 November 2014, the House of Lords is scheduled to debate the following motion:

“that this House takes note of women facing homelessness, domestic violence and social exclusion”

Information presented in this Note has been compiled to provide background reading for Members ahead of the debate. Although there is significant overlap between the issues, the Note has been divided into three separate sections. These in turn consider women’s homelessness, domestic violence and social exclusion. Each section opens with an introduction to the issue, including background and statistics, with the aim of providing some context, before setting out the government policy. The sections then conclude with commentary from charities, interested organisations and research bodies that have put forward further policy recommendations.
