The Government’s stay at home advice in response to the Covid-19 Pandemic can create new challenges for people experiencing domestic abuse.  

DAHA have produced guidance for housing providers on how you can offer safe responses to your tenants/service users where it’s known they are living with domestic abuse or where new concerns arise.  


In response to more agencies working remotely, we at STADV have developed a plan we hope will continue to facilitate effective communication and partnership working between agencies, whilst recognising additional time, and environmental constraints. This is, and will be, an ongoing trial process. We have mapped out ‘check in’ points to review how this trial is working, taking in all feedback and amending as needed.
