Support to change abusive behaviour

Following assessment, perpetrators (anyone aged 16+) can access 1-1 support and/or group work to recognise and change their behaviour reducing the risk to their partner and/or family.

Hear from people we’ve helped

I’ve had the pleasure of working with several IDVAs over the last 2+ yrs & they have all been extremely kind. As well as regularly checking in with me & keeping me updated, they helped my confidence grow.


An in person group full of wonderful facilitators and participates. The group captured a lot of what we experience on the other side of trauma and used that knowledge to help us pursue our personal growth. The group was also done in a safe and calming environment. The facilitators were kind and knowledgeable and always available to listen.
