We put those affected by domestic abuse at the heart of our services.

We offer an integrated support service for the partners and ex-partners of perpetrators who are attending our Bridging to Change or Women's Behaviour Change programmes.

Once a perpetrator joins one of our programmes, their partner and/or ex-partners are contacted to be informed about this. They are then offered free one-to-one support for the duration of the time that the perpetrator is working with us and up to six months after. Their children are also offered support, learn more about that here. The support will always be offered, but it is entirely up to the partners and/or ex-partners if they choose to use these services.

Empowering and ensuring the safety of those affected by domestic abuse is integral to our services. Working alongside partners and ex-partners of those on our programmes allows us to not only support them with what they're going through, but ensure they're being communicated with about the work taking place. 

I am undoubtedly in a different place than before. I am in a better place and a safe place as are, most importantly, my children. I will always remember your kindness and patience. Once again - thank you.
Cassie, Aged 38

How do we help?

The partner or ex-partner will be assigned a qualified Support Worker who can help them with what they're going through. Each experience is different and as such, our service is person-led and allows the partner or ex-partner to decide what they would like help with.

We offer both emotional and practical support, such as:

  • Help to prioritise their own well-being and safety and that of their children
  • Support through any set-backs
  • Make sense of their experiences and allow them to talk about it in a safe and supportive environment
  • Listen to their concerns and fears
  • Help them to think about the future and make any choices that will help improve things
  • Provide information and advice on other services such as housing, immigration, law or counselling
  • Keep them informed about the programme their partner is on and answer any questions they have
