Impact works in partnership with Barnardos to deliver Domestic Abuse Perpetrators Programmes. The programmes are open to you if you are male, aged 18 years and over and you recognise that you have been abusive in an intimate relationship and want to change your behaviour.
We are here to help; staff will support you through group programmes and one-to-one assessments, which have been designed to help you stop using abusive behaviour towards an intimate partner or ex-partner.
You will first need to attend an assessment, which is arranged to suit your availability. The assessment will look at whether you are suitable for an intervention programme and whether you are ready to change your behaviour which is extremely important if you want this programme to work for you. Not everyone that is abusive in their relationships will be suitable for this service.
If you are ready to make a change and you would like further information about a programme running in your area please contact:
