Standing together against domestic violence

Our Ambition

Standing Together’s ambition is to eradicate domestic abuse by transforming the way organisations and individuals think about, prevent and respond to it.  Through partnership working, we aim to   end domestic abuse by safeguarding families and communities, changing damaging behaviours, securing justice for the vulnerable, and challenging inequalities.

New Vacancy

Our key mission is to work in partnership with agencies in order to provide safer options for survivors and their children, ensuring that their perspectives are at the centre of service planning and delivery.

Domestic Abuse Housing Alliance (DAHA) launches with the aim of improving the housing sector's response to domestic abuse

The Domestic Abuse Housing Alliance’s (DAHA) mission is to improve the housing sector’s response to domestic abuse through the introduction and adoption of an established set of national domestic abuse service standards.

DAHA is a partnership between three agencies: Peabody, Standing Together Against Domestic Violence and Gentoo, who all have a longstanding commitment to tackling domestic abuse and sharing best practice.

Standing Together

Standing Together Against Domestic Violence helps to reduce the huge social and economic cost of domestic violence in the UK. Each year, 112 women die as a result of domestic violence.

Our proven method supports organisations, including the police, criminal justice partners, social services, healthcare workers and charities, to identify and respond effectively together to domestic violence. Our ultimate aim is to help these agencies to work in partnership, so that people receive the best support at the time they need it.

Saving lives, increasing personal wellbeing, and reducing the enormous damage of violent crime far outweighs the cost of what we do.

The terms ‘domestic violence’ and ‘domestic abuse’ are both used in this website. Our usage of both terms reflects the language used by a range of agencies, but the message in both is that in intimate partner and family contexts, the terms abuse and violence include the full range of types of behaviour, physical or non-physical, used by one person to exercise power and control over another.
