Saxon Weald achieve the Domestic Abuse Housing Alliance accreditation

Date: 10 October 2022

After nearly two years of preparation and a recent assessment from national charity, Standing Together, we have successfully passed the Domestic Abuse Housing Alliance (DAHA) accreditation.


Saxon Weald signed up to the scheme in November 2020, with an aim to improve the support available to residents experiencing domestic abuse. As part of the accreditation process, we spent time training staff how to handle domestic abuse disclosures, developing a domestic abuse procedure and partnering with specialist agencies.


Freya Routledge, Standing Together’s DAHA Regional Lead (South) led the assessment:

“I am so delighted that Saxon Weald have passed their DAHA accreditation. There is a very strong survivor-led ethos around domestic abuse that is allowing survivors to work towards the housing/support outcomes they want, at a pace that suits them. This ethos of sensitivity stems to the internal culture at Saxon Weald, where staff are incredibly supportive of each other.”
