Who are we?
We are SafeLives, the UK-wide charity dedicated to ending domestic abuse, for everyone and for good.
We work with organisations across the UK to transform the response to domestic abuse. We want what
you would want for your best friend. We listen to survivors, putting their voices at the heart of our
thinking. We look at the whole picture for each individual and family to get the right help at the right time
to make families everywhere safe and well. And we challenge perpetrators to change, asking ‘why
doesn’t he stop?’ rather than ‘why doesn’t she leave?’ This applies whatever the gender of the victim or
perpetrator and whatever the nature of their relationship.
Last year alone, nearly 11,000 professionals working on the frontline received our training. Over 65,000
adults at risk of serious harm or murder and more than 85,000 children received support through
dedicated multi-agency support designed by us and delivered with partners. In the last three years, over
1,000 perpetrators have been challenged and supported to change by interventions we created with
partners, and that’s just the start.
Together we can end domestic abuse. Forever. For everyone.
The Drive Partnership - Respect, SafeLives and Social Finance - are working together to develop a
sustainable, national response to perpetrators of domestic abuse that knits together local services,
complementing and enhancing existing interventions. The primary aim of this work is to reduce the
number of child and adult victims of domestic abuse by developing a whole system response that drives
service users to change their behaviour. Our vision is that one day there will be a national approach
which sees agencies in all PCC and local authority areas across England and Wales working together
to disrupt abuse and change behaviour.
The Drive intervention model explicitly targets high harm high risk perpetrators of domestic abuse and is
based on an intensive case management approach working alongside a co-ordinated multi-agency
response. Drive started as a pilot project which began delivery in 2016 and was evaluated as having
successful impact by the University of Bristol. In 2018 we moved into testing the replication of Drive in
We recognise that the Drive intervention is just one part of the bigger picture in responding to perpetrators of domestic abuse. A comprehensive pathway of interventions for different cohorts of perpetrators is needed alongside significant workforce development across the voluntary and statutory sectors, changes in the use of civil powers and legislation across the criminal justice system as well as long term strategic commissioning models that provide the resources needed to effectively do this work. Based on this thinking, in 2019, the Drive Partnership co-ordinated a Call to Action on the government to develop a strategic response to perpetrators of domestic abuse which has been signed by over 80 organisations and individuals.
Pulling together learning from the Phase I Drive pilot, Phase II Drive replication testing and progress made from the Call to Action collaboration, we are now beginning Phase 3 of Drive which has two main strands of work:
• Rolling out operational delivery of the Drive intervention in other areas of the country and
• National systems change programme to influence a transformation in the response to all perpetrators of domestic abuse across England and Wales.
Team members are employed across the three organisations within the Drive Partnership. This role is employed by SafeLives, a national charity dedicated to ending domestic abuse.
The Data Analyst will be responsible for working with and supporting the Research Manager and wider Research, Evaluation & Analysis team to deliver data support for the Drive Partnership, potentially including oversight and further development of the Case Management System and it’s reporting functions.
The post holder will support the implementation of Drive into the new sites. They will manage, analyse, interpret and present data and information to the Drive project team and local and national stakeholders in order to optimise the quality of implementation of the Drive model, ensure that the project achieves the greatest possible impact, and inform broader policy and practice in working with high risk perpetrators to disrupt abuse.
