About West Mercia 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 West Mercia, Cranstoun deliver the DRIVE programme and the Men and Masculinities programme. The service tackles the root causes of abusive behaviours and challenges perpetrators.

Men and Masculinities

The Men & Masculinities programme is a 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 programme 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 support any other treatment you may be involved with.

Coming into treatment can be the first positive step towards making life better for you and the people you care about.

Please get in touch with us if:

  • You want to achieve more stability.
  • You want to feel confident.
  • You are eager to put the past behind you.
  • You want to make yourself and the people you care about proud.
  • You know you can be a good father and just need some extra support.
  • You know you can be a good partner and need some guidance and help.You want to be more self-reliant.
  • You want help and support to better understand your own behaviour.
  • You are ready for positive change.

DRIVE

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 Herefordshire, Worcestershire, Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin

The Drive Project works with highly experienced staff and organisations that collaborate to tackle the root causes of abusive behaviour.
