Kent CDAP (Community Domestic Abuse Programme)

The Community Domestic Abuse Programme is a rolling programme of evening sessions designed to help men who feel their behaviour towards their partner has been, or is still, abusive.

CDAP challenges that behaviour and shows you how it affects your partner or ex-partner and any children that may be involved. We know it can be tough facing up to difficult problems. This programme will support you to make the changes you need to develop respectful, non-abusive relationships so that you are safe around your partner and any children.

The 27-week evening programme focuses on the intentions, beliefs and effects underpinning domestic abuse, including learning strategies for overcoming abusive and controlling behaviour. Partners of participants are supported throughout the programme.

The first step is to decide if you want to change your behaviour. After that, contact us and we will offer an interview to assess your suitability.

We are able to seek orders forbidding the other party from having any contact with you (and your children if necessary), as well as orders which will prevent the other party from coming to your home.

Stilwell and Singleton Solicitors

We are able to advise and represent clients who are desperate to shake off the horrifying and damaging effects of domestic abuse and to keep it out of their lives forever.  We will represent victims in Court and help them obtain immediate injunctions against violent and abusive partners and to enforce those injunctions when they are breached.

In appropriate cases we will apply to the Court to remove the abusers from any home they share with the victim.  As it is a serious criminal offence to disobey the terms of a Court Order, the Police are notified of all injunctions obtained.

In the majority of cases we can obtain Legal Aid for our clients and, in very urgent cases, we can be in Court on the same day that we receive instructions.

If you wish to discuss your legal issues with us, we can offer an initial consultation at a fixed rate.
