Description

The Centre for Research on Inner City Health (CRICH) is committed to conducting innovative research that supports social change. CRICH has undertaken a series of studies and summarized existing evidence concerning how to improve services to women who are experiencing or experienced partner violence. Women mentioned that housing stability means more than avoiding eviction. Stable housing offers adequate space and privacy, and is clean, in good repair, and safe and affordable over the long-term.

We are currently hosting a series of forums across Ontario in order to share our findings and recommendations and engage in collaborative discussion with service providers. Our objective is to generate a discussion around how to strengthen services for women who have experienced violence.

We seek to engage providers from a variety of sectors - i.e., housing, healthcare, public health, social services, justice, business, and others.

Light snacks will be provided.

Small travel bursaries can be arranged. Please contact the organizer ahead of time for information.

We can also arrange to have those interested participate remotely - by webinar. If you are interested in attending the webinar, please contact freilera@smh.ca directly rather than registering.
