Domestic abuse help for tenants
How we can help tenants who are victims of domestic abuse.
Our policy sets out how we will assist council tenants who are experiencing or threatened with domestic abuse.
More help and information: Domestic abuse
The council will treat all incidents of domestic abuse reported to us as high priority and will work with victims and respect their wishes (except in those circumstances where there are safeguarding issues) and take action where we have the power to do so.
Domestic abuse occurs when an individual suffers physical, psychological, emotional, sexual, or financial abuse by a current partner, previous partner, or an adult family member.
