Make a Stand Pledge

River Clyde Homes is proud to be supporting the “Make a Stand” pledge.

River Clyde Homes, has signed up to the Chartered Institute of Housing’s 'Make a Stand' pledge, to support people in our community who experience domestic abuse.

The campaign centres around a pledge which has been developed by the Chartered Institute of Housing in partnership with Women’s Aid and the Domestic Abuse Housing Alliance (DAHA) to encourage housing organisations to commit to supporting people affected by domestic abuse.  River Clyde Homes now joins more than 300 housing organisations who have so far signed up to the campaign.

Our four commitments:

  1. To put in place and embed a policy to support residents who are experiencing domestic abuse.
  2. To make information about national and local domestic abuse support services available on our website and in other places which are easily accessible to residents and staff.
  3. To put in place a policy and procedure on domestic abuse, or to incorporate this into an existing policy, to support members of staff who are experiencing domestic abuse.
  4. Appoint 'champions' within River Clyde Homes to support staff experiencing domestic abuse.
