Colleagues come together to help Longhurst Group to Make A Stand
15 August 2019
Colleagues from across Longhurst Group have come together to show their support for people experiencing domestic abuse as part of the Make A Stand campaign.
The campaign, from the Chartered Institute of Housing, has brought together housing associations across the country to tackle the issue of domestic abuse in our communities.
As part of our work to Make A Stand, colleagues from across the Group have filmed messages of support to those who may be experiencing abuse, in all its forms.
The result is the video below, which has been shared across our social media platforms to encourage people to seek support and raise awareness of our involvement in the campaign.
