MOVE, Men Overcoming Violence, works in the area of domestic violence, with a primary aim of supporting the safety and well-being of women and their children who are experiencing, or have experienced violence/abuse in an intimate relationship.
MOVE does this by facilitating men in a weekly group process that involves them taking responsibility for their violence and changing their attitude and behaviour. MOVE also provides all female partners/ex-partners of the men on the MOVE programmes information, support and safety planning during and after their partners/ex-partners attendance on the programme.
This service is for men who want to change their harmful behaviour and to learn how to have relationships that are based on love and trust and not on power and control.
Men attending MOVE will experience a respectful, person centred environment, which is conducive to change. MOVE will ensure their conditions of confidentiality are communicated to clients, women partners and referring agents.
If your partner is violent or you know someone who is, perhaps you could refer them to us and help someone to take the first step in changing their beliefs and behaviour.
MOVE Ireland is a national voluntary organisation with charitable status that provides intervention programmes free of charge for perpetrators of domestic violence at a range of locations around Ireland, which are listed above.
