Upcoming open access sessions

We provide open training courses which are ideal for when you might not have enough staff members for a full private booking. 

At the bottom of this page you will find our cancellation policy and 'expectation of learners' document - we ask that you give these a read before booking.


The course will be broken down into 12 weekly sessions lasting 3.5 hours each. 

Each week, sessions will run on Tuesday afternoons or Thursday morning so you can choose which works best for you. Please indicate in the comment box on the enquiry form if you have a preference.

For the spring 2021 cohort we have planned for the course to run from w/c 4th May until w/c 19th July


This initial pilot training course is available to existing DA Leads in housing provider organisations who are currently going through DAHA accreditation. During the pilot phase, due to intellectual property protection issues, we are unable to accept participants not yet working towards DAHA accreditation.

We intend to run the course from 2022 as a formally accredited course, so participants who successfully complete the course and the assessment tasks will receive a Level 4 qualification. Participants who attend the pilot course will have the option of completing assessment tasks in order to apply for the qualification as soon as the course is accredited. This is expected before the end of 2021.

Learners must demonstrate that they have attended domestic abuse awareness training (such as the DAHA Safe at Home Awareness course) prior to attending this course.

Learning objectives

By the end of this training learners will:

  1. Understand the dynamics and impact of domestic abuse
  2. Understand legislation and housing policy related to domestic abuse
  3. Know how to identify and respond to domestic abuse using best practice components
  4. Know how to improve domestic abuse survivor services, using DAHA as a model
  5. Know how to lead a housing organisation through the DAHA accreditation process


The spring 2021 cohort will be the pilot of this course so we are setting it at a reduced rate of £950 per person

This cost will increase for the next cohort

Post-training support

  • Following each module, we will send learners a PDF of the PowerPoint presentation from that session to enable you to build a file over the 12 weeks.
  • We will also provide a document containing handouts, further reading, watching and listening if you wish to explore the topics of domestic abuse and housing in more depth.
  • We can arrange individual debrief calls to support wellbeing if it is requested by any of the learners.
