Shama Hamilton Ethnic Women's Trust is conducting a research project inviting women to participate in sharing their housing aspirations, what are the challenges experienced to being able to create or live in housing that is in alignment with those aspirations, and exploring what could enable achieving better housing for and by women and their families.
The current housing development process, end product of housing design and neighbourhood layout, and the current options for renting and buying does not best suit the needs, aspirations, and skills of many women and ethnic women.
If women and ethnic women are included from the inception of housing, at the design level, as co-design participants and professionals, that the resulting housing developments will better reflect the needs, culture, aspirations, and skills of women and ethnic women.
We are looking for women (particularly ethnic women) to participate in this research through filling in a survey and then having discussions (live or by Zoom) to go deeper into understanding.
