Barnardo's runs weekly support groups in Somerset for men who are looking for anger management support and need help to prevent violence and abuse within their intimate relationships with women.

The Barnardo's Somerset Reprovide programme is provided to support men who want to change their behaviour and improve their intimate and family relationships.

Reprovide is a two year research programme that started in 2020. It is led by Bristol University, for more information please visit their site www.bristol.ac.uk/primaryhealthcare/researchthemes/reprovide/

Men can self refer directly or can be referred by any professional supporting them. We have a very simple assessment process and applicants can normally start a group within one month.

Current participants report that the group has been "incredibly useful" in helping them learn about the impact of their behavior.
