We are committed to doing all we can to assist applicants and tenants who are experiencing domestic abuse. So we have signed up to the Make a Stand campaign led by leading housing and women’s groups.
• We have introduced basic awareness training for front line staff.
• We recognise that way in which domestic abuse is approached needs to be different and separate from how anti social behaviour is dealt with.
• People – mainly women – who say they are experiencing domestic abuse should be believed.
If you are experiencing domestic abuse or would just like some advice get in contact with our housing team. We will listen sympathetically and either offer you advice or support, or point you towards those who can help the most.
Here are the contact details for a wide range of official and voluntary agencies who can offer support.
