RISE service for perpetrators of domestic abuse and young perpetrators

Barnet Council has commissioned RISE, an offshoot of London Probation, to provide services for perpetrators of domestic abuse. The organisation provides intensive group work and has a specialist programme for young people who are violent to parents. 

These programmes are more suitable than anger management for men who have been violent or controlling towards partners.  

Rise accepts GP referrals or self-referrals.
