The campaign was launched by Chartered Institute of Housing in June in partnership with Women's Aid and the Domestic Abuse Housing Alliance (DAHA).
It centres around a pledge that gives housing organisations the opportunity to sign up to make four focused, but easily deliverable commitments to provide support for people experiencing domestic abuse.
It was announced on 20 July that the campaign had made it to the final of the Midlands Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) Pride Awards in the Not-For-Profit Campaign of the Year category.
Steve Hayes, Communication Manager at CIH, said:
“The CIPR Awards are really prestigious and the competition is really strong so we are thrilled to make the final.
“Alison’s [Inman] choice of domestic abuse as the cause she wanted to raise awareness of during her presidency really struck a chord with the sector. It was clear housing associations felt they should be doing more on this crucial issue…”
Alison Inman, CIH President, said:
“The response from the housing sector to this campaign has been nothing short of amazing […] we hoped that organisations would support what we were trying to achieve and they absolutely have.”
The final ceremony for the Midlands CIPR Pride Awards will take place on Friday 26 October in Birmingham.
