Looking for help for someone else?

Where do I start?

About this site

In Your Hands is for people using violence and looking to change their behaviour, and the people supporting them to do so. It has been created alongside family violence experts, frontline workers, and people with lived experience. Giving information to people who use violence can help them understand their experience and how to change, helping lower the barriers to them seeking help.

If we want to eliminate family violence and sexual violence, then we need to support people to change. This website creates an online space where people can seek help and information to start their journey of change.
