At RISE we work to the Home Office definition of domestic violence and abuse:
“Any incident or pattern of incidents of controlling, coercive, threatening behaviour, violence or abuse between those aged 16 or over who are, or have been intimate partners or family members regardless of gender or sexuality. The abuse can encompass, but is not limited to: psychological, physical, sexual, financial and/or emotional.”
We work with a variety of stakeholders and other agencies to ensure the best outcomes to build safer families and communities, such as local authorities and PCCs.
In order to ensure the best long-term outcomes and support for families and victims, we operate a range of Domestic Abuse Services, including perpetrator group and one-to-one programmes, family support and preventative work, as well as an integrated safety service victims and women.
We recognise that statistically, most domestic violence and abuse is perpetrated by men against women, therefore our services are predominantly geared towards this market. As this is not exclusively the case however, we also offer a female programmes and LGBT+ specific domestic violence programmes.

Interventions for Perpetrators
Our experienced team of professionals work with perpetrators of domestic violence and abuse to guide them through a process of change, which addresses their behaviours and attitudes.
In addition to Domestic Violence Perpetrator Programmes, RISE also offer programmes and support which address issues such as child to parent violence, neglectful or abusive parenting, and support services for the entire family.
