Home Themes

Since 2018, Commonweal has set out focus ‘themes’ – policy areas where injustices have emerged but may sometimes be overlooked or where housing as part of the solution requires greater inspection. Until 2023, we focussed on violence against women and girls (VAWG), transitions and the criminal justice system.

Following successful pilot projects, research, and efforts to influence policy in our VAWG and transitions themes, we have steered in new directions so as to maintain our innovative outlook on housing solutions to social injustice.

As of 2023, we are focusing on injustices faced by young adults and those facing difficult transitions to adulthood, and injustices emerging as a result of migration, asylum and human trafficking. We continue to concentrate our efforts on the criminal justice system as a core policy theme also.
