Link makes a stand against domestic violence

Link Group has committed to support people experiencing domestic abuse by signing the Make a Stand pledge.

Link, who has joined the initiative in conjunction with the Chartered Institute of Housing, has pledged to support residents and staff affected by domestic abuse.

The pledge is being championed by Link’s Director of Housing Services, June Green.

June said: “Domestic abuse is unacceptable and, by supporting the great work of ‘Make a Stand’, we hope more of our tenants and staff feel safe at home.”

“As part of our commitment to Make a Stand, we have a plan in place to implement changes that need to be made.”

Organisations who sign the pledge are committed to: put in place a policy to support residents who are affected by domestic abuse; promote domestic abuse support services; amend HR policies to support members of staff experiencing domestic abuse; and appoint a champion at a senior level in their organisation.

Make a Stand is the result of a partnership between Women’s Aid and Domestic Abuse Housing Alliance (DAHA).
