South Tyneside Domestic Abuse Perpetrators Programme

Helping men help themselves change.



South Tyneside Domestic Abuse Perpetrators Programme (STDAPP) offers support for men wanting to change their behaviour.


Who is it for?

The programme is for any man who is concerned about his behaviour towards his partner or ex partner and wants to change.


The programme holds central a respectful and challenging stance focusing on the development of new, non abusive behaviours.


Domestic abuse is...


Any incident or pattern of incidents of controlling, coercive or threatening behaviour, violence or abuse between those aged 16 or over who are or have been intimate partners or family members regardless of gender or sexuality.  This can encompass but is not limited to the following types of abuse; psychological, physical, sexual, financial and emotional.








We believe that...


- Families should enjoy a safe and secure environment and live free from fear.


- Men can change their abusive behaviours.


- Abuse in whatever form is never acceptable.


- Adults and children are affected by domestic abuse.


- Domestic abuse is a choice.




STDAPP work in partnership with Options Womens Service who offer support to all partners or ex partners of men attending the programme.
