The Elm Foundation, Crossroads Derbyshire and NCHA/Derbyshire WISH already work as a consortium to deliver refuge accommodation and Domestic Abuse outreach services for women, men, children, and young people across the county, and have worked together as partners on other projects.
All three organisations have excellent track records of collaborative working, sharing ideas, information, data, and evaluations to end domestic abuse in Derbyshire.
Each organisation has senior staff with a strong background and years’ of experience of working in Domestic Abuse support service provision.
The Elm Foundation is affiliated with Women’s Aid (the national Domestic Abuse charity) and holds the SafeLives Leading Lights 2019 accreditation: the mark of quality for domestic abuse services. The Elm Foundation also has the Respect Accreditation, a nationally recognised quality and safety standard and is a White Ribbon Accredited organisation.
