Domestic abuse

We work to identify and support people who may be experiencing domestic abuse.

NCHA is an accredited member of the Domestic Abuse Housing Alliance (DAHA), which is a national partnership of affordable housing providers. Accredited members take steps to improve their approach to domestic abuse, adopting a set of standards to help support people.

At NCHA, our work includes training front-line staff to recognise signs that someone might need help. For example, if we get called out repeatedly to fix a broken lock, or if we can tell that a resident is anxious about something while we're with them. NCHA's domestic abuse services around the East Midlands provide a safe and secure home to people who have left an abusive situation, while our dedicated staff help people work towards making a fresh start.
