Domestic Violence Perpetrator Programme

Hits: 9723

We run a voluntary perpetrator programme (DVVP). It runs over 5 Modules of 5 weeks each and addresses issues of physical respect, intimacy and sexual respect, emotional respect, domestic abuse and the impact on children and rebuilding trust and respect.

 

The aims are to promote and ensure safety of victims and their children and to prevent/mitigate the risk of re-offending, to promote change in abusive/harmful behaviour and to work collaboratively with other agencies to manage risk constructively. In addition a women’s safety worker (WSW) will be offered to the partner/ex-partner to support her while the man is on the programme.
