The ethnographic research carried out across a number of European countries demonstrates that while there are some differences in the nature, experience of and response to women’s homelessness across the EU, the similarities in relation to this are more remarkable. In order to learn from this we need to pay more attention to women’s life stories in the context of those individuals and agencies with whom they come into contact so that we can reflect on their meaning in the construction and maintenance of different cultures which are interactively and discursively constructed across a number of dimensions. This information needs to be further analysed so that the homeless archipelago becomes part of a wider and more responsive system.

Keywords:   homelessness, homeless women, service providers, victims of partner violence, multi agency working, sexual abuse, social housing, mental health issues, homeless policies in europe
