THE AGENCY Hertfordshire Practical Parenting Programme (HPPP) has been offering support to families experiencing CPV since 2005, funded to do so since 2010. It is a Community Interest Company, working intensively with families on a one-to-one basis; and in close cooperation with other agencies (e.g. police, housing, schools, drug and alcohol, Children’s Services).

CRITERIA Catchment area is the county of Hertfordshire and surrounding areas. Referrals are accepted for families with children of any age, up to 25 if there are additional needs. Intervention will last as long as needed.

REFERRAL and ASSESSMENT Referrals from agencies (written required) or families can self refer. Initial response within 12 hours and assessment by the following week.

THE SERVICE A combination of models of work is used, adopting a whole family approach. Each intervention will be specific to the family involved. Meetings generally take place in the home or an alternative safe place in the community. The team is in the process of developing a manual aimed at professionals working with child to parent abuse. Out of hours telephone support is offered to families where deemed necessary.

EVALUATION The programme is evaluated yearly for funding and management purposes. Currently participating in an external audit.
