Make A Stand (Domestic Abuse)
The Association has signed up to the Chartered Institute of Housing’s (CiH) Make a Stand Pledge and has committed to take action to support people experiencing domestic abuse.
Make a Stand was launched in June 2018 as part of the CiH’s commitment to tackle domestic abuse. It centres around a pledge that CiH has developed in partnership with the Domestic Abuse Housing Alliance (DAHA) and Women's Aid.
Millions of people experience domestic abuse every year, with two women being killed by their partner or ex-partner every week. Housing organisations house and employ millions of people across the UK, and that means we house and employ many thousands of people affected by domestic abuse.
By signing the pledge, Cloch has become part of that collective effort and will put these four commitments in place:
Put in place and embed a policy to support residents who are affected by domestic abuse
Make information about national and local domestic abuse support services available on your website and in other appropriate places so that they are easily accessible for residents and staff
Put in place an HR policy, or amend an existing policy, to support members of staff who may be experiencing domestic abuse
Appoint a champion at a senior level in your organisation to promote the activity you are doing to support people experiencing domestic abuse
