Make a Change

Funded by Lincolnshire Police & Crime Commissioner.

Collaboration with Respect.

The Make a Change programme was developed by Respect, in partnership with Women’s Aid, to deliver an early response to domestic abuse in Lincolnshire and Sussex, creating opportunities for change for those who use abusive behaviours in their relationships. The model is intended to support those who use violence and abuse in their relationships to access support earlier, before intervention is mandated through child protection or criminal justice. This aims to widen access to support to a larger range of people who use violence and abuse in their relationships, preventing some of the harms that their behaviours might cause to their partners, their children and the wider community. Our evaluation explored the implementation of the model, assessing outcomes for both those who behaved abusively and for victim-survivors. We also explored how the intervention was viewed by relevant professionals in the pilot sites.
