Dealing with domestic abuse

Dealing with domestic abuse

Our commitment to customers and communities goes beyond providing homes, and includes helping to create safe living environments.

You can be confident in how we deal with domestic abuse and violence if you need help.

We were awarded national Domestic Abuse Housing Alliance (DAHA) accreditation in 2020 for the work we do in this area.

The accreditation guides our work alongside partners and stakeholders as we do what we can to deal with domestic abuse in Bolton and Greater Manchester. And it helps us in practice every day to have the greatest impact we can from within our organisation.

Over the course of a year, we typically support over 500 people experiencing domestic abuse.

Our dedicated team of domestic abuse service specialists are supported by colleagues across multiple service areas to help people stay safe in their home or relocate them if they need to leave an abusive household, while also providing access to money advice and other support services so that people can regain their independence and confidence when they start anew.

The accreditation process was challenging but means we have an organisation-wide focus to deal with domestic abuse, support victims and survivors, take action against perpetrators but also work with them as appropriate to stop reoffending.

We’re one of the country’s leading housing organisations for perpetrator management– that is working with people who’ve committed domestic abuse to help behaviour change.

While we were an early adopter of this approach, it has now become more embedded in policy nationally and we’re proud of the impact it has on changing lives.
