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.
If you think someone is in immediate danger from domestic abuse, dial 999 and tell the police. Contact your local neighbourhood policing team if it’s not an emergency. You can also contact the National Domestic Abuse Helpline for advice and support: ring them on 0808 2000 247 at any time. A charity called Respect runs an advice line for men, which is 0808 801 0327.
