We are a charitable organisation whose mission is to help prevent violence in society, in particular domestic violence and abuse. Our core activity is working with perpetrators to address the root causes of this. We also provide advice, support and counselling to survivors of domestic abuse and violence.
We are a counselling service, accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). We work both with individuals needing support and with public sector agencies who make referrals to us or wish to develop joint services.
Our main focus is working with male perpetrators of domestic abuse and violence.
For male perpetrators, we have developed a two-stage model based on principles of counselling. This is a 30-week programme which starts with a suitability assessment, followed by 13 weeks of one to one counselling and then 16 weeks of group counselling. We help break into the cycle of abuse and violence by challenging and supporting perpetrators to take responsibility for their actions and stop altogether their abusive, angry and violent behaviours. You can read more on our SERVICES page.
We also support the survivors of domestic abuse and violence
This service is provided for all genders by a specialist therapist who can offer safety planning, support in making life changes and wider counselling. This is open to all survivors of domestic abuse, including elder abuse and child-to-parent abuse, whether in the past or on-going. You can read more on our SERVICES page.
Drawing on the experience we have developed by working in this field for over 20 years, we also offer bespoke training programmes on working with perpetrators of domestic violence.
MORE ABOUT US
Since 1996, Everyman Project has been helping perpetrators to break out of the cycles of abuse and violence, primarily against women and girls, by supporting them to reduce and stop altogether their abusive, angry and violent behaviours. For much of that time, we have also supported the partners of those on our perpetrator programme and more recently survivors of domestic abuse more widely.
Our services are provided entirely by counsellors and psychotherapists. We are an organisational member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) with accredited service status. As a BACP member, we are bound by its Ethical Framework.
Everyman Project was formed from the Everyman Centre, a volunteer organisation formed in 1989 to offer support to perpetrators of domestic violence. After the Centre closed in 1996 due to a lack of funding, some of the volunteers continued the work by forming what is now Everyman Project.
Our entry for the BACP Counselling and Psychotherapy Awards 2010 was shortlisted and highly commended. We have also been a runner-up in The King’s Fund’s GSK IMPACT Awards.
Everyman Project has previously been funded by Porticus UK and the Lloyds TSB Foundation for England and Wales. We are currently funded and supported by the Oak Foundation and by the City of London Corporation’s charity, City Bridge Trust.
