Drive, Worcestershire

DRIVE

The Drive Project is a new response to domestic abuse. It aims to reduce the number of child and adult victims of domestic abuse by deterring perpetrator behaviour. Drive provides a case manager who acts as a single point of contact for perpetrators.

Liaising closely with local police and support agencies, caseworkers deploy a two-pronged attack of disruption through the criminal justice system and/or support for unresolved personal issues to stop domestic abuse.

The Drive Project pilot focuses on priority (high-risk or serial) perpetrators, as this group carries the greatest risk of serious harm and engage poorly with available services.

Referrals to Drive either come from MARAC via partner agencies or directly from the police.
