White Ribbon Accreditation

The purpose of this decision is to authorise officers to pursue White Ribbon accreditation.

The Council achieved Domestic Abuse Housing Alliance (DAHA) accreditation in December 2022. The White Ribbon accreditation serves a significantly different  purpose to DAHA as DAHA addresses the Council’s role as a housing provider whereas White Ribbon will allow the Council to demonstrate its commitment to tackling violence against women more broadly.

Due to the DAHA accreditation, pursuing the White Ribbon accreditation is now more achievable than it was previously and has been recommended to the Lead Member by the Council’s Corporate Safeguarding Group.
