The Jenkins Centre provides a range of interventions to help people end their use of abusive behaviour in relationships, for people in Leicester City.
The Jenkins Centre
The Jenkins Centre was developed in 2012 through a partnership with Respect, who are the UK National membership organisation for work with domestic violence perpetrators, male victims and young people.
The Jenkins Centre is delivered as part of a consortium UAVA Ltd, which stands for United Against Violence and Abuse. The consortium is made up of three local specialist providers of domestic abuse and sexual violence services.
These are Women’s Aid Leicestershire Ltd, FreeVA and Living Without Abuse.
UAVA aim's to provide a simplified journey, which can be accessed by anyone who has been affected by domestic abuse and or sexual violence.
The service is funded through Leicester City Council and therefore free for those that live in Leicester City. If you live outside of Leicester City you can still access the service however there will be a charge, please contact us for further information.
The centre works with individuals from all ethnic, religious and cultural groups across Leicester City, whatever their sexual orientation or gender to help them change their abusive behaviour towards an intimate partner or ex-partner.
