European Standards for Perpetrator Programmes

Minimum requirements for safe and effective interventions for male perpetrators of intimate partner violence

The WWP EN European Standards for Perpetrator Programmes prioritise survivor safety and well-being, and recognise the importance of integrating survivor perspectives into the work with men who use violence. They define the minimum requirements for safe and effective work with adult male perpetrators of intimate partner violence against their female partners.

Currently, the standards are a working document, which means that we are still in dialogue with partners and will continue integrating their feedback and additional research results. If you have any comments or thoughts, we invite you to contact us.
