DAHA's vision

Home is often the most dangerous place for victims and survivors of domestic abuse, housing continues to be the primary barrier to women leaving their abuse and the leading cause of homelessness amongst women.

Yet, these outcomes are preventable, when housing providers and local authorities are equipped to spot domestic abuse early and provide an effective response to both survivors and perpetrators, as a part of a wider Coordinated Community Response to domestic abuse.

DAHA’s vision is to support all local authorities and housing providers across the UK to offer a safe, consistent, and effective response to domestic abuse through our training, membership, and accreditation frameworks, and to influence systems change through our national policy work. Our ambition is that survivors in any type of housing circumstance or tenure, will receive the right support at the right time from local authorities and housing providers.
