Millions of people experience domestic abuse every year, and two women are killed by their partner or ex-partner every week.

Housing organisations house and employ millions of people across the UK, meaning we come into contact with thousands of people affected by domestic abuse.

Tackling domestic abuse

We believe that the housing sector must do more on this issue. In the words of our former president Alison Inman, these are "our homes, our people, and this is our problem".

Working with Women's Aid and the Domestic Abuse Housing Alliance, we are asking housing organisations to publicly commit to taking action to support victims of domestic abuse.

So far, more than 400 organisations have signed to our Make a Stand pledge, and all it involves is signing up to four focused but easily deliverable commitments.

For non-landlord organisations we have developed the Supporter's pledge to enable them to show support for the campaign and to enact the relevant pledges within their organisation.
