South Glos Domestic Abuse Services
About S Glos Domestic Abuse Services
Cranstoun believe no one should experience domestic abuse. Everyone has the right to feel safe, protected and empowered. We are here to help, we are here to empower and we’re here to challenge and change abusive behaviour.
In South Gloucestershire, Cranstoun deliver the DRIVE programme. The service tackles the root causes of abusive behaviours and challenges perpetrators.
The Drive Project is a collaborative approach to tackling domestic abuse, by liaising with police officers, support agencies, caseworks and directly with those presenting abusive, challenging and violent behaviour. Drive provides a case manager who acts as a single point of contact for perpetrators. This project focuses on high risk and serial perpetrators, in order to encourage more engagement with recovery programmes and tackle the greatest risk of harm. Referrals to the Drive programme either come from MARAC via partner agencies or directly from the police.
The programme can provide the following:
- Information and advice
- Support with education, training and employment services, including volunteering
- Social and physical activities
- Debt relief and payment planning support and signposting
- Bespoke one-to-one work with a case manager
- Housing advice, liaison and referral
- Welfare benefits signposting
- Signposting to other services in South Gloucestershire
The Drive Project works with highly experienced staff and organisations that collaborate to tackle the root causes of abusive behaviour.
