We pledge to tackle domestic abuse

26 September 2018
Sanctuary Housing Association logo

At Sanctuary Housing we are committed to the welfare of our residents and staff. To honour this commitment, we have signed up to two national campaigns to tackle domestic violence.

Make a Stand has been developed by the Chartered Institute of Housing (CIH) in partnership with the Domestic Abuse Housing Alliance and Women’s Aid. Domestic abuse is one of the biggest issues in society today, with many millions of people affected every year, however a large proportion of it goes unreported.

By signing the Make a Stand pledge, we have promised to support those affected by violence in the home by raising awareness among residents and staff.

White Ribbon is a male-led campaign which aims to end violence by men against women. To support this campaign, we will promote a message of respect and tolerance, and lead by example to challenge male violence against women and make a genuine difference.

If you or someone you know is experiencing domestic abuse and are in immediate danger, please call 999 and ask for the police.

If you are not in immediate danger, please call one of the helplines for help and support, which can be found on our online directory.
