Community Safety and Engagement
At Christian Action Housing Association we are committed to providing safe homes in safe communities.
The links below are guides about how to help those or yourself if you fall victim to any of the following;
What it is, what to do about it, and who can help.
If you, or someone you know, is experiencing domestic abuse we can help you get the support you need.
Domestic abuse is any kind of controlling or threatening behaviour between two people who are, or have been, intimate partners or family members.
Domestic abuse does not have to be physical violence. Abuse can be psychological, sexual, financial and emotional. It can also happen just one time, or on a regular basis. For that reason, domestic abuse can sometimes be hard to recognise – even if it is happening to you.
If you’re worried you, or someone you know, might be in immediate danger, always call 999 in the first instance. If you need to alert the emergency services but can't talk safely, please dial 999 and then press 55 when given a cue. This will forward your call to the police and make them aware of the situation.
We can also offer you help and support, please contact our Customer Services Team.
