We are pleased to announce that The Domestic Violence Intervention Project (DVIP) has a new service in Surrey – the YUVA (Youth Using Violence and Abuse) Service.
The YUVA service at DVIP, a division of Richmond Fellowship, incorporates a whole family model to address young people who use abuse or aggression toward family members or intimate partners. The primary aim is to increase the safety of families and support young people to maintain positive relationships. The service consists of two separate but integrated services:
The young person programme, which works directly with young people who are using violence/abuse toward their family or intimate partner.
A support service consisting of a combination of 1:1 sessions for siblings and/or intimate partners, and a structured parents group
