GHA CiH Certificate

Every year, over two million people in the UK experience domestic abuse. 

At Grampian Housing Association, we are committed to taking action to support people who are experiencing domestic abuse.  We have  signed the CiH Make a Stand Pledge, developed in partnership with the Domestic Abuse Housing Alliance (DAHA) and Women's Aid.

As part of this commitment we:

  • Have a policy to support tenants who are affected by domestic abuse;
  • 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 tenants and staff;

Our Domestic Abuse Support Group ([email protected]) is available to offer support, advice and guidance.

There are Government definitions of domestic abuse, but in real terms if you feel afraid of someone in your life who is supposed to care about you, it may be that you are experiencing domestic abuse. It does not have to be a spouse, it does not have to be physical. It can happen in any relationship (intimate partner, child, sibling, ex-partner, casual partner, spouse, family member). It can happen to anyone of any background, and it can include a range of behaviour. While Government definitions may vary in different parts of the UK, if someone in your life is making you feel afraid of living your life in the way you want, if someone is trying to control you - we urge you to speak to someone and get support. There is no shame in experiencing domestic abuse and no one should live in fear of someone else.
