Support for Couples

Over the years we have identified a need to work with the male or female partners of women we support. During the process of accessing support from the project many women identify that their partners are instrumental in preventing them from progressing and come to identify these relationships as abusive.
However there has been a significant minority of women we have supported who have been involved in long term relationships which have sustained throughout their involvement in prostitution, substance misuse and criminal activity. Therefore we do offer a support service for couples following assessment of both parties needs. This work can be challenging and requires a careful and sensitive approach. The work is carried out away from the project in premises used by partnership agencies which are more appropriate to support men.
