Loreburn Safe at Home Protocol

 

Loreburn HA along with our community partners is committed to raising awareness of issues regarding gender-based violence and domestic abuse, whilst providing practical and emotional support to victims. We understand that everyone has a right to feel safe at home.

If you are a tenant, or are living with one of our tenants, and are experiencing or are at risk of experiencing domestic abuse you can contact Loreburn in confidence for advice and support.  We are able to offer, at no cost, a range of home safety measures that can help improve safety within the home or advise of alternative housing solutions where it is not reasonable to continue to occupy the current accommodation or where it is your wish to move to another property.

You can contact your housing and community engagement officer in confidence on 01387 321300.
