We believe that our tenants, and those living with them should never live in fear of violence from a spouse, civil partner or partner, former spouse, civil partner or partner, or other member of their household including carers. We will provide support and advice for our tenants or member of their household suffering from or threatened with violence and/or abusive behaviour.
Our policy covers all instances of abusive behaviour, whether it is physical, emotional or psychological. Where we suspect domestic violence and/or abuse in relation to a child or someone with special needs, we will refer the matter to the appropriate agency.
If you or anyone you know, is suffering from domestic abuse, call the 24 hour National Domestic Violence Freephone Helpline 0808 2000 247. For other help and support please click on the links below.
