  • no matter how angry, frustrated or stressed someone is, it is never ok for that person to abuse and harm their partner, ex-partner, and family
  • violence and abuse are a choice, and people can choose to make positive changes to their behaviour if they are open and willing to do so.
  • all communities should feel safe - there is no excuse for abuse and harm

How Lambeth will reduce harmful behaviours

We are committed to developing perpetrator interventions in Lambeth. They provide individuals with opportunities to work through past traumas, and offer support for behaviour change when and where appropriate.

We aim for our interventions to be tailored and non-discriminatory, whilst holding individuals who harm to account for their behaviour.
