We believe it’s about time there was a nationwide strategy for responding to perpetrators of domestic abuse.
Currently less than 1% of perpetrators receive a specialist intervention to challenge or change their behaviour. Opportunities are being missed to stop a perpetrator abusing their current victim and prevent them from moving on to their next. This failure costs the lives of two women a week and around £66bn a year in social and economic costs. It must change.
As a partner on the Drive project with SafeLives and Social Finance we have worked in collaboration to develop a call to action for a national perpetrator strategy bringing together over 80 signatories. For more information visit Drive.
