Domestic abuse

In the year ending March 2018, an estimated 2.0 million adults aged 16 to 59 in England and Wales had experienced domestic abuse in the last 12 months.

We have signed the ‘Make a Stand’ pledge, joining housing organisations across the UK to help tackle domestic violence.

The Make a Stand pledge has been developed by the Chartered Institute of Housing (CIH) in partnership with the Domestic Abuse Housing Alliance (DAHA) and Women’s Aid.

“By signing up to the Make a Stand campaign, we are showing that we will do what we can to tackle domestic violence for our customers and our staff.”

How we're protecting you
