The Drive Partnership works across the domestic abuse specialist sector, public sector partners and beyond to develop sustainable, national systems in England and Wales that respond effectively to all perpetrators of domestic abuse. Our vision is that one day there will be a consistent approach which sees agencies in all PCC and local authority areas across England and Wales working together to disrupt abuse and change behaviour to increase safety for victims-survivors, children and families. The Drive Partnership’s work on implementing national systems change is funded by The National Lottery Community Fund.
