DASH - Decent and Safe Homes

Decent and Safe Homes Services - DASH - is a Derby City Council inspired joint-working initiative between Local Authorities, property owners, landlords and tenants. DASH delivers services aimed at improving housing conditions in the private sector, with particular emphasis on the private rented sector.

Hosted by Derby City Council, DASH has worked successfully across the East Midlands region and beyond for many years, providing a valuable low cost professional service to over 40 Local Authorities.

DASH aims to raise housing standards and deliver increased efficiency in services through:

  • raising awareness of the Housing Act
  • harmonising standards
  • professional development opportunities
  • landlord engagement.

DASH is a leading provider of housing-related training and accreditation services and offers a one stop shop for individual Local Authorities to engage and work with the private rented sector, as well as the opportunity to link with neighbouring authorities to procure a shared service.
