DAHA was part of a ground-breaking 2-year funded European Project, which has produced bespoke ‘Safe at Home’ training for housing professionals

This one-day course is for anyone who works in housing, particularly those who aren't domestic abuse specialists. It will provide housing professionals with an understanding of domestic abuse as a social issue and its dynamics. It will also equip them with the skills to identify risk factors; report appropriately, implement an action plan in conjunction with the family’s needs; and make appropriate onward referral to support services.

The trainers have a wealth of experience working in both the housing and domestic abuse sector so the course is directly relevant and relatable to your work. 

Learning outcomes include:

  • Define domestic violence and abuse
  • Understand the dynamics of an abusive relationship
  • Understand the impact of domestic abuse on children
  • Identify signs of domestic abuse in their everyday work
  • Take an active part in responding safely to domestic abuse
  • Learn about the Domestic Abuse, Stalking and Honour based violence (DASH) Risk Identification Checklist and your role in the Multi-Agency Risk Assessment Conference (MARAC)
  • Collaborate with external services for safe outcomes
