We're the Domestic Abuse Housing Alliance

We are a national partnership between three agencies: housing associations Peabody (London) and Gentoo (Sunderland), and London-based charity Standing Together Against Domestic Violence.

The Domestic Abuse Housing Alliance’s (DAHA) mission is to improve the housing sector’s response to domestic abuse through the introduction and adoption of an established set of standards and an accreditation process. 

Launched in September of 2014, DAHA embeds the best practice learned and implemented by its 3 founding partners and has established the first accreditation for housing providers.

DAHA is leading the housing sector's response to domestic abuse

The Department for Levelling up Housing & Communities (DLUHC) endorses DAHA as national best practice in the national Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG) strategy:

"Domestic abuse has a devastating effect on lives and communities and this Government has put forward proposals for new laws which will transform our approach to this terrible crime...

...I welcome this initiative led by the Domestic Abuse Housing Alliance and encourage housing organisations to take a proactive approach to supporting survivors of domestic abuse."

Communities Minister, Nigel Adams, August 2018
