More About The Organisation
The Stopping Violence Programme is a voluntary goup for men in Bristol, who are violent or abusive towards female partners. Its aims are to promote and ensure the safety of female victims and their children, to promote change in men's abusive and harmful behaviour, and to work with other agencies to manage risk consructively.
This is a 30 week groupwork programme, looking at Physical Abuse, Sexual Respect, Emotional Abuse, The Impact on Children and Rebuilding Trust and Respect.
Partners or ex-partners will be offered support by a Women's Safety Worker, whilst the man attends the group.

It is preferrable that men refer themselves by contacting the project directly.
If referral then by whom? For example, Social Worker, School, Doctor, Self-referral?
Agencies can signpost men to the project, but he will still have to make direct contact, to ensure he meets our criteria, and to assess his commitment to changing his behaviour.
Currently we have no waiting list, but this will probably change, as the service develops.
