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 work with young people 1:1 to identify and change their violent/abusive behaviours. The programme draws on a variety of approaches such as cognitive behaviour therapy, attachment theory and systemic practice.
We work to explore more effective ways of communicating distress that are safer and address any underlying beliefs and attitudes supporting their use of violence.
Parents are offered 1:1 sessions that focus on exploring their experiences and supporting them to take steps to make themselves and their family safer.
