Jigsaw Group is proud to Make a Stand against domestic abuse and joins many other housing associations in pledging support for the CIH Make a Stand campaign.
Make a Stand was launched in June 2018 as part of Alison Inman’s presidential appeal to tackle domestic abuse. It is a way for housing organisations to publicly commit to take action to support victims of domestic abuse and centres around a pledge developed in partnership with the Domestic Abuse Housing Alliance (DAHA) and the 2018 presidential charity Women’s Aid.
Millions of people experience domestic abuse every year and two women are killed by their partner or ex-partner every week. Housing organisations house and employ millions of people across the UK. This means we house and employ many thousands of people that could be affected by domestic abuse.
By signing up, Jigsaw Group will be making four focused commitments to provide support for people experiencing domestic abuse. We will be putting these commitments in place by September 2019 and will publish accordingly on our website in due course. Watch this space.
