Forgotten mothers: the case for a policy focus on the experiences of motherhood and homelessness

Responding to an identified gap in evidence, researchers have undertaken a study to understand the experiences of mothers who have become homeless and the ways in which existing policy and legislative frameworks in England meet their needs. The research findings raise questions about whether policy and legislation adequately protect and support this group of women. Valuable support is available, particularly through the provision of temporary accommodation because of the protection afforded to families via the legislative framework in England.
