Work with partners

Our main focus is working intensively with people whose behaviours can become abusive in intimate relationships, and perpetrators of domestic violence, i.e. those people who have been convicted of offences by a court.

Partners to these people also sometimes need support ( 8% according to reliable research) and because of our main focus we attempt to link partners with other agencies, viewing this as the safest option for them.¬† When a partner is not able to access this support we will support via the telephone and a Relate trained therapist, taking care internally not to set up “triangular” relationships whereby partner 1 tries to speak to partner 2 via the organisation.
