Pledge comprises four commitments to support people who live and work in housing who are experiencing domestic abuse
The Chartered Institute of Housing (CIH) has reported that more than 50 housing organisations have signed up to its Make a Stand pledge in the first three days of the campaign.
The pledge was developed by CIH in partnership with the Domestic Abuse Housing Alliance (DAHA) and Women’s Aid. It consists of four commitments which housing organisations can make to support people who live and work in housing who are experiencing domestic abuse. The commitments are:
•to put in place and embed a policy to support residents who are experiencing domestic abuse;
•to make information about national and local domestic abuse support services available on the organisation’s website and in other places which are easily accessible to residents and staff;
•to put in place a HR policy and procedure on domestic abuse, or to incorporate this into an existing policy, to support members of staff who are experiencing domestic abuse; and
•to appoint a champion in the organisation to own the activity being done to support people experiencing domestic abuse.
