Transforming Lives Affected by Domestic Abuse.

On Friday the 15th May, Nene Valley Family Refuge launched its new branding and logo at a Thanksgiving Service at Abington Avenue United Reformed Church.  The charity is now known as eve and is known for Transforming Lives Affected by Domestic Abuse.  

What Is Domestic Abuse?

Domestic violence and abuse is unacceptable in any form. Eve works to support women and children who are survivors of domestic violence and abuse.

Domestic violence and abuse includes controlling, coercive, threatening behaviour, violence or abuse between people who are aged 16 or over who are or have been intimate partners or family member regardless of gender or sexuality. It includes harm that is:

    • psychological
    • physical
    • sexual
    • financial
    • emotional

Family members are defined as mother, father, son, daughter, brother, sister, grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins, in-laws or step family.

The Restored Programme

Restored Is An Intensive, Time-Focussed, Structured Rehabilitation And Recovery Programme For Survivors Of Domestic Abuse Who Are Seeking Change. It Equips Women And Children To Move On To Freedom And Restoration.

Restored aims to:

    • Offer a secure setting (residential and centre based) that provides the opportunity for a sense of family.
    • Help women, children and young people to gain a sense of healthy family and build resilience and ability to resist abuse.
    • Support, protect and empower survivors of all ages to become independent and maintain long term freedom from abusive relationships.
    • Celebrate achievements and successes with women and their families.
    • Share our expertise and success to contribute to the development of ‘best practice’ in the field of Domestic Abuse.

It involves a range of therapeutic and educational interventions, leading to recovery, empowerment and lasting change for each family member.


The programme is designed to support women (both those with and without children) who have survived domestic abuse, and want to recover and build resilience and the capacity to maintain a safe and healthy lifestyle. It is inclusive of those for whom lasting change is particularly difficult due to long term abuse or complex issues.


Participants need to be survivors of domestic abuse, seeking long term change, and be willing to commit to a programme of individually targeted interventions. A full needs and risk assessment will be undertaken.


The Restored programme may be accessed within a safe residential setting (refuge), or at our community based centre for those who are living in their own homes in reach of central Northampton, and do not have the need for secure accommodation.
