Futures Free from Violence

What is it?

Futures Free from Violence (FFFV) offers women, trans, and gender diverse people who have used force and/or violence in family and intimate partner relationships the opportunity to work towards change in both a supported group and one-to-one therapeutic environment.

We aim to facilitate understanding of participants’ experiences, actions and thinking in a judgement-free environment, which considers how beliefs are shaped by our values and experiences.

Who is it for?

What does it look like?

  • Individual therapeutic and support work
  • Individual support by a specialist family violence parenting practitioner who offers exploration around healthy relationships, attachment, child development and parenting skills
