Quickly exit this page

Prevent and Change (PAC) is a partnership project across the London Boroughs of Lambeth, Lewisham, Southwark, Kingston, Merton, Richmond and Wandsworth, with specialist service providers Richmond Fellowship and Refuge.

PAC aims to ensure that the whole system is better geared towards managing domestic abuse perpetrators in partnership with communities across South London, to:

  • increase the safety and wellbeing of victims and survivors and associated children, and
  • prevent new and/or further victimisation and harm  

PAC will hold monthly case management panel meetings, and where appropriate offer direct interventions to high-risk perpetrators that typically have multiple (unmet) needs such as ill mental health, substance misuse, neurodiversity, homelessness, debt etc.

Those referred need to be:

  • 16+ years old,
  • identified as a domestic abuse perpetrator,
  • of any gender identity, and
  • reside or have links to the borough.

PAC will consider direct work with active perpetrator and victim/survivor relationships providing it is safe to do so.

Please note:

  • Referrals are for panel discussions only; direct interventions with perpetrators will only be initiated on panel agreement that it is safe to do so.
  • Perpetrator consent to refer to PAC panel discussion is not advised or required. Consent for direct intervention may be sought by appropriate member agency in line with panel agreed risk management plan.
  • Victim/Survivor consent to refer to PAC panel discussion is not required.

Referrals are to be made by an established PAC partner. To make a referral:
