A 30-week programme from Glow will work with perpetrators of relationship abuse in Derbyshire who want to change their behaviour.
Part of our Domestic Abuse Prevention Programme in Derbyshire, The Keys Project will work with men in the area who want to stop being abusive towards their partners.
The Keys Project will be delivered as five six-week long modules, which includes interactive sessions and one-to-one support.
We’re also working alongside a wide range of partner agencies including Respect, Cafcass and Derbyshire Police and Crime Commissioner.
Participants will be supported to recognise the difference between a healthy and unhealthy relationship and learn to safely manage their actions and emotions.
There’s continued support following the end of the programme too, with a minimum of six monthly check ins to assist with further recovery.
Glow will also work with current or ex-partners of participants to offer extra support and make sure their safety remains priority.
Gemma Thomas, Domestic Abuse Prevention Team Leader at Glow, said: “We will be working with male perpetrators who have been abusive towards their partner or ex-partner, through group work which holds them accountable for their behaviour, with the aim to unlock healthier relationships.
“The safety of victims and their families is paramount, and we have a dedicated worker supporting them throughout the perpetrators engagement with our service.
“We work closely with all partner agencies to provide a coordinated response to men who want to change their behaviour and stop being abusive towards their partners.
“Participants will be supported to recognise the difference between a healthy and unhealthy relationship and learn to safely manage their actions and emotions.”
