Education Prevention in the Community (EPIC) Programme
The EPIC programme is delivered by Atal Y Fro and forms the DV services of Families Together Project. EPIC is a prevention programme that addresses domestic abuse prevention. EPIC is delivered across Wales through various elements including both group work programmes and 1-1 sessions with a designated support worker.
EPIC Group work Programmes
Men – CHAT (Changing to Healthy Alternative Techniques) is the male perpetrator group work programme that looks at behaviour and impact on victims.
Women – JBA (Journey Beyond Abuse) group work programme for victims of domestic abuse.
Vista for female perpetrators who have not been a victim of domestic abuse.
Young People – Break4Change Cymru, Adolescent to parent violence and abuse (APVA) programme designed for parents whose children are abusive, violent or who are using destructive behaviour.
1-1 Sessions are also facilitated across the whole EPIC programme.
Couples work is also available for couples who have completed a group work programme first. The ethos of the couples work is that couples are able to remain together safely or separate amicably.
Children are signposted to appropriate children and young peoples services.
