The Change Project & The Drive Project
The Change Project is delighted to have been appointed by the Drive Partnership as service provider for their exciting and innovative approach to those perpetrating domestic abuse in Essex.
This is a national pilot across three areas, Wales, W Sussex and Essex, which aims to increase the safety of victims of domestic violence, and children in the families, through practical, individual interventions with perpetrators of high risk domestic violence and abuse.
The Drive Project is a community-based intervention for perpetrators (service users) of domestic abuse whose victims are assessed as at a high risk of significant harm or fatality, aged 16 years and over. The service will offer a risk and needs led response that proactively works with this potentially involuntary client group in a multimodal way; striving for behavioural and attitudinal change. The service, delivered in the context of multi-agency response, will develop a tailored intervention plan that meets needs, addresses offending and motivates active engagement in activities that will produce sustained behavioural change; whilst keeping the risk to victims paramount.
Through our team of experienced counsellors, we offer relationship counselling, sex therapy, family counselling, consultations, youth counselling and anti-bullying programmes, family support and advice, life skills training courses and therapeutic mediation.
Successful, healthy relationships are essential for fulfilling, stress-free lives. Relate can help you make your relationships better.
