DAHA Accreditation is THE UK benchmark for how housing providers should respond to domestic abuse in the UK. It is part of the Governments “Ending Violence against Women and Girls Strategy: 2016 to 2020” and DAHA are leading this change.
Minister for Vulnerability, Safeguarding and Countering Extremism, advises that:
Domestic abuse devastates the lives of victims - this Government is working to put a stop to it.
By its very nature this kind of abuse happens in the shadows or behind closed doors, with many victims suffering in silence.
Housing providers are in a unique position to help identify this hidden crime.
I welcome DAHAʼs efforts to help these institutions and I am pleased that the Government has been able to support its vital work.
By undertaking Accreditation, you are sharing DAHA and the Governmentʼs mission to improve the housing sectorʼs response to domestic abuse. DAHA Accreditation is the first step in delivering a consistent set of standards across housing providers in the UK.
Thanks to the support from the Home Office, our dedicated Accreditation website shows you what you need to do.
It enables you to capture your work as you go, save your progress and submit everything in one go, in readiness for your DAHA Review and Accreditation award.
You can use the site as much as you like over the coming months to keep track of all your work.
Furthermore funding from London Councils and Comic Relief means you are also able to access a suite of workshops across the country to further support you in this process.

DAHA Accreditation will ensure those affected by domestic abuse are treated in a fair, compassionate and effective way - no matter where they live in the UK.
Thank you for being a part of this vital change.
