Description of event

‘Housing is a key issue in domestic abuse’. This workshop will look at what Domestic abuse is, it’s effects on individuals, communities and society. We will look at why housing providers should implement policies and procedures to deal with domestic abuse and how this can realistically be achieved.

DAHA will provide delegates with the following information:

• Who is DAHA & what is our Mission?

How DAHA was founded and how we aim to improve the Housing response to domestic abuse as part of the coordinated community response

• Why do housing need to improve their response? A (brief) case study.

• How are DAHA working to improve the housing response to domestic abuse?

Look at standards & the 8 priority areas and the accreditation process

• What are the benefits of DAHA Accreditation?

Looking at the cost benefits, the reputational benefits & the humanitarian benefits of improving the response to families living with domestic abuse

Hull City Council will then focus on the approach that their Housing Service has developed to respond to domestic abuse, as part of a multi agency partnership. They will share their experience of what works in terms of embedding culture change in this area and the practical steps they took to get there. The session will also provide insight into the DAHA accreditation process from the perspective of a large social landlord and outline the benefits our organisation gained through achieving it.

Benefits of attending
