Welcome to the maze – an interactive resource portraying women’s narratives of multiple exclusion, homelessness and accessing support. Developed by Joanne McGrath, a co-funded SPHR ARC NENC PhD student who is part of Fuse, the Centre for Translational Research in Public Health based at Northumbria University and supervised by Prof Monique Lhussier, Dr Natalie Forster, and Dr Stephen Crossley.

This research looks to explore pathways into multiple exclusion homelessness, its links with health and wellbeing, and access to services.

Navigate the maze to learn about the experiences of 20 women in their own words, their reflections on support and their feedback on making services more accessible.

**Trigger warning – please note, this resource contains real life stories from people with lived experience and as such contains some swear words and offensive language that may be triggering for some people
