Expectations of learners
Participants in our training courses are expected to:
Read the participant information provided in advance of the first session;
Complete the post training evaluation survey;
Attend the session in full;
Participate fully in the Zoom sessions:
This means that cameras must be on at all times (except during scheduled breaks) and participants visible to the facilitators.
We understand that some people are uncomfortable in a Zoom environment – if this is the case we recommend waiting until this training is offered again as a face to face opportunity.
We also recognise that some people may be uncomfortable sharing images of their home in the background; this can be alleviated by using an electronic background. Find out about adding a background on Zoom here; and about adding a background on Teams here.

DAHA Accreditation Leads training - Expression of interest
The accreditation standards consist of 8 priority areas to address domestic abuse responses across your organisation.
Our priority areas
Our 8 priority areas are divided into the following, with a number of requirements within each:
Policies & Procedures
Inclusivity & Accessibility
Publicity & Awareness
Accreditation is based on the following principles:
Creating an enabling environment where survivors know they will be listened to. We want people and families to thrive. We will achieve this by creating an enabling environment where survivors can disclose abuse without judgement, knowing they will be believed, listened to and heard.
How you do the work is as important as what you do. We will work with empathy, integrity and transparency. We commit to empower our staff to build their knowledge, skills and confidence to identify and respond to domestic abuse in the most appropriate way that puts the survivor at the heart of the intervention and support.
Amplifying survivor voices
Valuing feedback from people with lived experienced of domestic abuse. We seek to learn from survivors, both staff and tenants and work to amplify their voices to inform our development and improvement of practice.
Domestic abuse is different for everyone and will never be all of one person’s experience. Domestic abuse is rarely the whole of a person’s experience and we recognise that they may be disadvantaged by multiple oppressions such as race, gender, sexuality, abilities. We will take an intersectional approach recognising a person’s unique experience based on the intersection of all relevant grounds.
Creating safe homes and communities where perpetrators are held to account for their behaviour. We recognise that the safety of those who are experiencing domestic abuse is paramount and that safe intervention starts by talking to them and asking them what they need and want to happen. Perpetrators will be held to account for their behaviour with the safety of those who have experienced domestic abuse from them a priority consideration in any intervention.
Working towards a Coordinated Community Response (CCR)
Committing to working together to end domestic abuse. We will be part of a coordinated community response to domestic abuse by working collaboratively with local agencies to share information and to meet the needs of the individuals and families experiencing domestic abuse. We will communicate and build meaningful relationships with tenants, with colleagues and with those who have specialist knowledge, experience and powers to act to support us to keep families safe and well.
