Domestic Abuse

Transform, Sutton

Transform is the Sutton domestic abuse service that champions a partnership of local organisations, each with unique skills and experience in domestic abuse. Our partnership allows us to deliver the highest level of support possible for the Sutton community and its families affected by domestic abuse (DA).

About Transform, Sutton

Our partners and their programmes include:


  • Cranstoun – Providing independent domestic violence/abuse advice (IDVA) services to our high risk victims/survivors, helping to mitigate risks and empower the people we work with
  • Sutton Women’s Centre – Providing our female victims/survivors with the 12 week Freedom Programme and when needed, DA specific counselling after completion
  • Home-Start Sutton – Providing a nurturing programme/parenting programme for our victims/survivors to help with parenting children affected by DA (6 months to 5 years old)
  • Jigsaw4u – Providing Helping Hands, our DA volunteer matching programme, to support our survivors of DA with help throughout their independent journey once living away from their perpetrators
  • Hestia – Providing refuge for women (and families) fleeing DA, floating support and transitional support


  • The Limes College – Providing a series of programmes to children affected by DA
  • RAE – a recovery programme for 9-16 year olds (please note, the child must not be living with their abusive parent to take part in this programme and siblings can only complete the course consecutively)
  • Becoming a Man (BAM) – for 9-18 year old boys
  • Violet – for 9-18 year old girls (both BAM and Violet are carried out within groups at school and are less DA focussed, so can be completed whilst living with an abusive parent)
  • Bespoke PSHE or Assembly lessons
  • Transform Service Manager – Available to speak to, organise and deliver bespoke training for professionals or the ‘What is Love’ campaign for children


  • Men & Masculinities Programme – The Men & Masculinities programme is designed to deepen the abusive partner’s understanding of themselves and their relationships
  •  Men & Masculinities is a group programme that provides a safe space for people who have engaged in abusive, harmful and damaging behaviour within their relationships. The programme explores what it means to display appropriate behaviour within relationships and highlights how conflict, aggression and anger can deeply impact the lives of others
  • The 24-week group programme is typically run as an all-male peer group and focuses on behaviour, how we act, how this reinforces how we think and feel and most importantly how to act differently and make changes to our behaviour and the environments we create. It is also designed to complement and support any other treatment
  • We work with females perpetrators on a one-to-one basis unless numbers allow for an all-female group

Male victims

In the UK, one in 6-7 men will be a victim of domestic abuse in their lifetime and nearly half (49%) won’t tell anyone due to the shame and stigma of being associated with abuse of this kind (compared to female 19% of female victims).  11% of male victims (7.2% women) have considered taking their life.

We offer non-judgmental, specialist support to all victims and survivors of domestic abuse and would always encourage people to reach out.
