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
Over the next year, we will be working to continue to publish reports, blogs, podcasts, government consultations and webinars with and by partners across the housing and domestic abuse sector. We will discuss key issues for survivors living in the PRS and the solutions that partners have developed to support survivors to overcome housing barriers.
This toolkit highlights the challenges that victim/survivors experience in private tenancies and considers initiatives and offers guidance for engaging landlords and professionals working in the private rented sector (PRS) at a national and local level.
A briefing prepared for DAHA by Sarah-Jane Walker and Marianne Hester in July 2019, which draws on data collected as part of the ESRC-funded research project Justice, Inequality and Gender-Based Violence (Grant number: ES/M010090/1), conducted by the Universities of Bristol, West of England and Cardiff between 2015 and 2018 (PI: Professor Marianne Hester).
Policy positions & government consultations
The DAHA PRS Development Manager works with partners such as Surviving Economic Abuse and the cross-sector Domestic Abuse Housing Policy and Practice Group to inform and influence policy and legislation that could support individuals experiencing domestic abuse to access and maintain safe and stable housing within the private rented sector. Below is a list of government consultation responses related to the needs of survivors living in the private rented sector.
Standing Together Against Domestic Abuse: Response to the consultation on statutory guidance for Domestic Abuse Protection Orders and Domestic Abuse Protection Notices (Sept 2020)
Please see here for more information on the work of the National Domestic Abuse Policy and Practice Group.
The previous PRS Development Manager has had the opportunity to work alongside partners at the National Residential Landlords Association, Association of Residential Letting Agents and FixFlo, to bring domestic abuse to the attention of their membership landlords and letting agents. Below are some examples of published articles.
Over the course of the next year, we will continue to add blogs, podcasts and webinars that focus on key issues faced by tenants in the PRS experiencing domestic abuse, and some of the solutions that could help survivors overcome barriers and safe and stable housing.
