Make a Stand was launched in June 2018 as part of the then CIH president Alison Inman's presidential appeal to tackle domestic abuse. It centres around a pledge that CIH have developed in partnership with the Domestic Abuse Housing Alliance (DAHA) and the 2018 and 2019 presidential charity Women's Aid.
Millions of people experience domestic abuse every year, with two women being killed by their partner or ex-partner every week. Housing organisations house and employ millions of people across the UK, and that means we house and employ many thousands of people affected by domestic abuse.
By signing the pledge Spire View have become part of that collective effort promising to make four focused, but easily deliverable commitments to support those affected by domestic abuse:
1. Put in place and embed a policy to support residents who are affected by domestic abuse 2. Make information about national and local domestic abuse support services available on your website and in other appropriate places so that they are easily accessible for residents and staff 3. Put in place a HR policy, or amend an existing policy, to support members of staff who may be experiencing domestic abuse 4. Appoint a champion at a senior level in your organisation to won the activity you are doing to support people experiencing domestic abuse
