The Change Hub

Lives free from Domestic Abuse

The Change Portfolio is pleased to announce the introduction of The Change Hub in Essex and Southend. This new service will promote wellbeing by enabling people to have healthy relationships in families, between individuals, and in the community.

From the 1st April 2020 The Change Hub is available to residents in Essex and Southend, replacing the Domestic Abuse Perpetrator Outreach Service and Project Columbus. We work in a non-judgemental way with clients aged 16 and above who want to make positive changes in how they behave in relationships with others, regardless of gender, ethnicity or sexuality.

How does it work?

We offer a range of interventions that are matched to the individual’s circumstances and level of risk (ascertained by a face-to-face meeting with the client). Most of our interventions are delivered in a one-to-one setting in a local community venue, however clients may be referred to one of our group work programmes. (Ex)partners can access our in-house Integrated Support Service to ensure that victims/partners are supported throughout our perpetrator interventions. We also offer advice and can signpost clients to other agencies that may be able to provide additional support to make positive changes in their lives.
