About the role

We know that there are 100,000 adults and 130,000 children at high-risk of murder or serious harm due to domestic abuse, yet less than 1% of perpetrators receive any specialist intervention to change or disrupt their behaviour. We cannot tackle domestic abuse without getting to the root of the problem: the perpetrator.

Drive is an innovative national pilot that aims to improve the lives and safety of victims and children by holding high-risk perpetrators to account. The pilot combines 1-2-1 case management of perpetrators with a co-ordinated multi-agency response and sustainable transformation of local andnational systems.

The pilot, led by Respect, SafeLives and Social Finance, has completed its first 18 months in three areas. We have learnt a great deal and the initial results around victim and child safety are encouraging.

Although Subject to final confirmation of funding level, this is a hugely exciting time for Drive, we are now beginning to replicate the project across 5 more areas. Replication is in the early stages and this leadership role is crucial to its success. The role will involve building a new team to work across five regions and leading the way in providing a strategic transformation of our understanding and response to perpetrators of domestic abuse. 

 We are looking for someone committed to finding innovative solutions to social problems, who can confidently build a team, work with a range of stakeholders and inspire national and local teams to work together to make families safer, sooner.
