If you are struggling with anger, conflict or wanting to hurt a partner, Make a Change can help.
We’ll work alongside you to change how you behave in relationships.
Plus we will advise and guide your support network – friends, families, community and professionals – so everyone increases their understanding and pulls in the same direction.
In other words, Make a Change is based on a ‘whole community’ response to domestic abuse.
How does it work?
Working closely with Trafford Domestic Abuse Services (TDAS) we provide a range of one-to-one and groupwork sessions for participants.
If you refer yourself, or are connected with the programme, we will provide one-to-one support and group work which will help you to understand your behaviour in relationships and encourage you to make positive changes.
We will also offer support to current partners, ex-partners and children.
Make a Change is for people who are not working with any other statutory, family court or criminal justice services.
We also provide briefings and training to help organisations strengthen their response to domestic abuse.
Communities, family and friends
We can support you if you are concerned about the behaviour of a friend, family member, or someone in your community. Our team will provide you with information, guidance and advice.
Make a Change aims to:
- Address abusive behaviour as early as possible
- Empower communities to take action to address behaviours
- Improve the safety and wellbeing of victims, survivors and children
- Reduce the wider societal impact of domestic abuse
