    The Welsh housing minister has threatened to discontinue funding social landlords if they do not have a clear strategy in place to help tackle domestic violence. Girl In Thoughts

    Carl Sargeant spoke to Inside Housing and said that some housing associations do not have sufficient polices on domestic violence.

    “I will not fund organisations that don’t comply to what I think is a common sense approach to community safety. For organisations that don’t want to move forward on the issue of domestic violence, our relationship will cease.”

    Mr Sargeant wrote a letter to all Welsh social landlords in November and included a check list for housing associations which included, requirements such as committing to training all staff on the implications of domestic violence and to reviewing on monitoring polices that tackle the issue on a regular basis.

    Julie Nicholas, policy and public affairs manager at the Chartered Institute of Housing Cymru, said: “It is great that the Welsh housing minister is showing strong leadership on this important policy area; domestic abuse destroys families and lives – better partnership working and proper organisational responses are key to tackling it.”

    Responding to the DWP Consultation:  Housing Benefit Reform - Supported Housing

    "It was well-run, in a good location, and very useful.  I've only one suggestion; as the session went on it would perhaps have been useful for bullet points of general agreement about what should be in the sector response to be displayed and added to as the session went on, maybe on a flip chart. Regarding your response paper, I particularly like the answer you give to question 9.  In fact the general: "if it ain't broke don't fix it" response could be pushed harder."
