Hearthstone, our domestic violence support service, has been selected as a finalist for the Women in Housing awards.
The announcement by judging panel in the ‘improving the lives of women or communities’ category brings further national recognition for the team and the help they provide to some of the most vulnerable people in our community.
Set up 15 years ago in Haringey, Hearthstone provides a vital role for nearly 500 residents a year who have been the victim of domestic violence and abuse. Domestic violence is a significant cause of homelessness in London and fear of losing a home can often trap people in violent situations.
This is the second year in a row that the service has been a finalist for a national award following an appearance on the shortlist for last year’s Housing Heroes Awards.
The winners of the Women in Housing awards will be announced in October 2018.
