Coronavirus Update: Domestic Abuse - Advice & Resources for Housing Providers
Posted by natalie_pearson April 01, 2020
The government’s stay at home advice in response to the COVID-19 pandemic can create new challenges for people experiencing domestic abuse. Victim/survivors may be at home with their perpetrator and unable to escape from the abuse. The Domestic Abuse Housing Alliance (DAHA) has produced guidance for housing providers on how you can offer safe responses to your tenants/service users where it’s known they are living with domestic abuse or where new concerns arise.
