Membership packages & benefits

We can offer three different membership types that vary depending on whether you would prefer to simply support us as an affiliate, or receive guidance from us as you work through our accreditation for social housing providers.

Affiliated Membership: Ideal for any type of organisation who would like to show their support for our principles, work and development, as well as allowing access to exclusive events and resources to support a better response to domestic abuse.

Accreditation Membership: Designed for social housing providers going for DAHA accreditation - your membership fee pays for all the support and resources we will provide to help you throughout the process. If you decide to go for DAHA accreditation it is not essential to join as an Accreditation Member, however, it is recommended otherwise you will have to work through the process on your own.

Accredited Membership: Created for social housing providers who have already achieved DAHA accreditation and want to show their continued commitment and support for us, as well as receiving many other benefits including access to exclusive events, webinars, and resources.
