5. Innovation and Partnerships

Social landlords are constantly innovating, forging new partnerships and developing their policies, services and responses for the benefit of tenants. Tackling domestic abuse is no different.

Our understanding and awareness of the prevalence of domestic abuse and associated safeguarding issues continues to grow. At the same time, evidence has amassed highlighting the long term impact of adverse childhood experiences (ACES), when children grow up in a home where there is domestic abuse.


Whether part of safeguarding and wider housing management, undertaking awareness raising activities, or new project initiatives, in this section of the response map we highlight some examples of how social landlords are innovating,  helping raise awareness and developing new areas of practice to help tackle this unabating, complex issue and contribute towards wider social change.
