2010 – Launch of Stay Free

Other organisations were now developing specialist group work programmes of between 8 and 12 weeks.  While these were excellent in supporting women to understand domestic abuse, our service users were asked, ‘What’s next?  How do I stay free? This led us to find funding to develop our 20-week group work programme, Stay Free.  Four modules cover 5 weeks each of topics such as Maintaining Change, Emotions, Beliefs and Thinking, Safe Boundaries and Assertiveness. The programme has been developed for delivery online and is currently undergoing a review to update its important content.
