Who we are

The Domestic Abuse Housing Alliance (DAHA) was established in 2014 as a partnership between Standing Together Against Domestic Abuse (STADA), Gentoo and Peabody housing associations.

We are the leading specialist domestic abuse organisation supporting housing providers to improve their response to domestic abuse, through our membership model, accreditation framework and training packages.

We use our practice-based experience to work alongside partners across the housing and domestic abuse sector to influence policy and national decision making through our DAHA-led National Domestic Abuse & Housing Policy and Practice Group

Our model for a housing response to domestic abuse is nationally recognised as best practice, through the Domestic Abuse Act Statutory Guidance 2022, and is endorsed by the Domestic Abuse Commissioner for England & Wales, Nicole Jacobs.

“Since its launch in 2014, the Domestic Abuse Housing Alliance (DAHA) has driven forward significant positive change in the housing sector’s response to domestic abuse. I am proud to have been one of the founding members of DAHA in my previous role as Chief Executive of Standing Together Against Domestic Violence, and I am pleased to endorse these new accreditation standards which I would encourage all local authorities and housing providers to adopt.” Nicole Jacobs, DA Commissioner England & Wales
