Domestic Violence

Domestic violence can come in many forms. It is rarely a one off incident and it is not only about being physically or sexually abused. You may be subject to more subtle attacks, such as constant breaking of trust, isolation, psychological games and harassment. Emotional abuse is just as serious and damaging; many survivors will carry the emotional scars long after any physical injuries have healed.

Always call 999 if you or someone else is in immediate danger

DVIP (Domestic Violence Intervention Programme)
DVIP (Domestic Violence Intervention Programme) runs 26 week rolling group programme for men who have used domestic violence and abuse against their partners. This group is designed to stop violent and abusive behaviour, and help people instead form healthy, respectful relationships.

The programme is suitable for those who acknowledge that their behaviour towards their partner or ex-partner has been violent and/or abusive at times; who are keen to try and change some of the things that have gone wrong; and who want to work towards stopping those things from happening again.

Alongside the group there is a confidential DVIP Women's Support Service, working separately with the partners of those who have used abuse.

We are currently accepting referrals for the programme. If you would like to refer yourself for the programme then please call DVIP.

For professionals wanting to refer families or individuals they are working with please call or email us.

If you would like to use the service or find out more about it, please do not hesitate to contact us.
