Who we are
We are a division of Richmond Fellowship. For over 25 years, DVIP have been helping to make women and children safer. With services across London, we work to stop domestic violence and to reduce the harm it causes to women, children and families.
We are known as an authority in the UK in providing specialised domestic violence services. The Home Office has cited DVIP as a model of good practice, and the Office of the Mayor of London has recognised our contribution to women’s safety. We’re proud that our Violence Prevention Programme is one of the first in the UK to be fully accredited by Respect, the accreditation body for domestic violence perpetrator programmes in the UK.
What we do
We provide a specialist 1:1 child therapy service for children and young people affected by domestic violence. Our service enables children and young people to address the emotional impact of domestic abuse. By offering a safe, consistent and confidential space, children and young people are able to process difficult and confusing experiences.
Our play and creative arts therapy sessions are non-directive and child-centred, focusing on the needs and age of the child or young person. We provide an opportunity for children and young people to explore and process their experiences using a range of approaches.
