Battery flattening

Hi. I've got a 2013 Swift Signature 564, which I understand is a limited edition version of the Swift Challenger Sport 564. I've been having problems with the battery running down when the van is not in use. (I estimate that it will flatten within one month unless recharged). The battery is an Energy Leisure Cyclic and Starting Battery, XL85 DT. I wonder whether others have had this problem and if so, what the solution is. Thanks in anticipation.
