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
As a sub-group of the DAHA led-National Domestic Abuse and Housing Policy and Practice Group, the Perpetrators and Housing Working Group brings together local and national housing and domestic abuse sector partners to influence policy and practice that addresses perpetrator housing.
Domestic abuse is not acceptable or inevitable. Perpetrators must be recognised as the cause of harm and to eradicate it, we need a holistic response for perpetrators as well as support for victims. Understanding and addressing how a perpetrator’s housing circumstances impact victim-survivor safety and housing security, is a necessary element of a holistic response to perpetrators.
Perpetrator work should never come at a cost to victim-survivor services, the two must complement each other. Victim-survivors’ expressed needs and assessment of their own risks must be at the centre of any response to perpetrators.
To influence policymakers to address perpetrator housing, both as a part of the development of a statutory perpetrator strategy to domestic abuse and violence against women and girls and of the government’s rough sleeping strategy.
To understand and evidence the links between perpetrator housing and victim-survivor safety and housing security and the costs and benefits of perpetrator housing responses.
To map and monitor local perpetrator housing strategies and initiatives and champion a recognised standard of best practice based on mutually defined principles.
To place a perpetrator housing response within the wider Whole Housing Approach and within a Coordinated Community Response to domestic abuse, which places the responsibility on all agencies to play a role in holding perpetrators to account and supporting victim-survivors to access safety and housing security.
