Case Study: Barnardos Domestic Violence Prevention Project

Case studies
Barnardo’s Domestic Violence Protection Project is highly effective at addressing abusive behaviour; stopping the perpetrators and their offending behaviour. There is a high demand for the service from both statutory services and self-referrals from male perpetrators of domestic violence. This demonstrates that there is a need, alongside the fact that Police reports of domestic violence incidents run in to the thousands. It is time for perpetrator programmes to become a widespread and easily accessible option in approaches to address domestic abuse in our local communities.
