Transform has signed up to the Chartered Institute of Housing (CIH) appeal to tackle domestic abuse, Make a Stand.
Millions of people experience domestic abuse every year and two women are killed by their partner or ex-partner every week. Housing organisations house and employ millions of people across the UK and therefore house and employ many thousands of people affected by domestic abuse.
The CIH believes that the housing sector must do more on this issue. In the words of Alison Inman, ex-President of the CIH, these are "our homes, our people and this is our problem".
Launched in June 2018, Make a Stand centres around a pledge developed in partnership with the Domestic Abuse Housing Alliance (DAHA) and Women's Aid.
The pledge gives housing organisations the opportunity to sign up to make four focused commitments to provide support for people experiencing domestic abuse. This is a way for housing organisations to publicly commit to take action to support victims of domestic abuse.
