New Domestic violence Prevention Programme

New Domestic Violence Prevention Programme (REPROVIDE) For men who are concerned they are abusive in their relationships with women

Researchers at the University of Bristol, along with Splitz (who run domestic violence perpetrator programmes) and Next Link domestic violence support service, are looking for men to take part in a new study that will help improve how we support men in changing their behaviour and how we can support their partners or ex-partners.

The study aims to recruit 48 men who live in Bristol, North Somerset or South Gloucestershire, and who are:

  • Aged 21 or over
  • Worried that their own behaviour in relationships with women might be violent or abusive
  • Who can understand English well enough to take part in a group programme
