We are committed to a world in which every family is free from violence, abuse, isolation and exploitation. We strive to make our communities safe places for everyone to live and promote opportunities for children to thrive.
To do this we are changing the conversation around tackling abuse and criminality. We believe there needs to be a radical shift in focus from looking at the offending behaviour to understanding what makes the individual offend. Fundamentally, understanding what drives abusive and violent behaviour helps us develop new and innovative ways to tackle it from the root cause.
To support this goal, we deliver pioneering community interventions for families experiencing domestic abuse and visionary rehabilitation programmes for individuals in the criminal justice system.
While victim services are integral for safeguarding families, we are building an evidence base which highlights the transformative power of working with perpetrators and the long-term benefits this offers families and victims of domestic abuse.
Through our excellent partnerships within the voluntary sector and police forces nationwide we are informing public policy and contributing to a systematic change in tackling domestic abuse and criminality.
