Freedom Programme

The Freedom Programme is a domestic violence programme which was created by Pat Craven and evolved from her work with perpetrators of domestic violence.

The Freedom Programme examines the roles played by attitudes and beliefs on the actions of abusive men and the responses of victims and survivors. The aim is to help victims of domestic abuse make sense of and understand what has happened to them, instead of the whole experience just feeling like a horrible mess. The Freedom Programme also describes in detail how children are affected by being exposed to this kind of abuse and very importantly how their lives are improved when the abuse is removed.

Our next course starts in September 2018 to book your place call 01773 718555


Freedom Forever


The programme is a voyage of discovery which charts our own life course. It will examine our beliefs, raise our self-esteem, allow us to embrace our goals and teach us how to make them happen. It will explore where our negative thoughts come from and how to turn them into positive action. Strategies for success in employment education, health and personal development will be included as well as a session on practising assertiveness.

Our next course will take place early 2019 to book your place or if you would like more details call 01773 718555
