A new analysis carried out by the University of Bristol for the Domestic Abuse Housing Alliance (DAHA) and Surviving Economic Abuse (SEA) states that more needs to be done to support victims-survivors of domestic abuse who are homeowners or private renters.

The report was funded by social landlord Peabody as part of a pilot project called the ‘Whole Housing Approach’. This project seeks to increase safety and choice for victims and their children, to reduce the use of costly emergency and/or refuge accommodation and ensure that, so far as is practicable and safe, victims can remain in their own homes.
