Reporting domestic abuse
We are committed to tackling all forms of domestic abuse and take all reports seriously. We will work closely with you to find a solution. Please contact us for help and advice.
Domestic abuse is a breach of the tenancy agreement and we will consider taking action against anyone living in a council or Six Town Housing property found to have committed such an offence.
Bury Council and Six Town Housing offer a number of ways to help tenants and their families who have been subjected to domestic abuse e.g.
• Moving to an alternative tenancy within the Bury area
• Providing extra security to your home and safety plans to help you protect your family
Greater Manchester Police have a specialist department with trained domestic violence officers who can offer legal advice and support. They can be contacted on 0161 856 8064.
