The Change Project was established in June 2017 after its departure from the Relate Federation, in order to serve the best long-term interests of our clients. The charity’s mission is to provide a range of services to achieve positive change for all individuals by ending violence and abuse, resolving relational conflict and promoting emotional wellbeing. Some of the services include;
The Change Project’s work in the field of domestic violence and abuse has continued to grow and evolve. Each year more than 100,000 people in the UK are at high and imminent risk of being murdered or seriously injured as a result of domestic abuse. Services rightly focus on meeting the needs of victims but only 1% of perpetrators get a specialist intervention that might prevent future abusive behaviour and as a result there is a high level of repeat victimisation.
Since 2016 we have been running one of three UK pilot areas for The Drive Project, a 3-year venture that challenges high risk perpetrators of domestic abuse. This new model of intervention aims to fundamentally change perpetrator behaviour to make victims and families safe.
The Change Project’s team includes seven members of staff led by Cathy Grafton, Chief Executive and two teams which include the Domestic Violence Prevention team and the Healthy Relationship team. These teams bring a range of different specialist qualifications depending on the service they deliver.
The Board meets quarterly and consists of people with specialist skills in finance & accountancy, legal, and HR. We are currently going through a board review process with the aim of creating a larger, highly committed and more diverse board who can help the organisation to achieve growth in our business and diversify our income. In particular we are seeking individuals with experience of marketing and fundraising, although we are open to people from other backgrounds. These are voluntary roles although reasonable expenses will be payable.
