PCC supports domestic violence prevention programme
Research shows that breaking the cycle of vulnerability and harm caused by domestic violence is harder to achieve unless the root causes are properly addressed. By engaging with perpetrators at the earliest stages, there is a greater chance of changing their behaviours and challenging their mind-sets.
Make a Change is for anyone in Sussex who is worried about how they treat their loved one in an intimate relationship.
Mrs Bourne comments: “Protecting victims of crime is always going to be a priority for me and this programme is already making a difference in improving the lives of some of the most vulnerable in our communities.
“It is vital that we improve the response to perpetrators to reduce the number of victims currently experiencing domestic abuse, limit the harm and prevent further victimisation.
“If you are worried about your behaviour towards someone else, I urge you to get in touch with the team at Make a Change before the situation escalates. They are here to help you break that cycle before it starts.”
Natalie Mendez, Local Area Manager said: “We want to help people who are committed to making things better and access the help they need, whilst ensuring appropriate support services are in place. Make a Change, visit the website or make the vital call.”
Service user Ross reached out to Make a Change after his behaviour at home escalated: “People make mistakes, but change is everything. Getting help was the best thing I ever did.”
