Benefits of attending

In June the Chartered Institute of Housing launched its Make a Stand campaign, in partnership with Women’s Aid and the Domestic Abuse Housing Alliance.
The Make a Stand pledge gives housing organisations the opportunity to sign up to four focused, but easily deliverable, commitments to provide support for people experiencing domestic abuse. Once an organisation signs the pledge, they have until September 2019 to put these commitments into place.

CIH is proud to be supporting the Women’s Aid as our Presidential Charity for both this year and next year. We have been working with the Domestic Abuse Housing Alliance to signpost and provide training for housing providers up and down the country.

This workshop session will focus on Policy and Procedure and the importance of having an effective stand-alone domestic abuse policy.  We will also cover the importance of having a policy for the staff and how this can all be achieved

• Think about your organisation – how many tenants do you have? IF we know 1 in 4 women experience DA – how many will be impacted by robust DA policies?
• There are huge gains for HP’s to be experienced separating ASB and DA such as disclosure/saving lives/trust and respect from survivors/big message that DA is not condoned within your housing organisation and there is support and agencies to assist with responding to DA
