Decision 38/2022 – Interventions Alliance Domestic Abuse Perpetrator Fund  

Author and Job Role: Lucy Thomas, Commissioning & Policy Lead for Victim Services

Protective Marking:  OFFICIAL

Executive Summary

The grant is for the delivery of two services; a Compulsive and Obsession Behaviour Intervention (COBI) programme and an intensive domestic abuse One-To-One programme:

  • The COBI programme is an outcome focussed programme for stalking behaviour.  
  • The Intensive DA One-To-One perpetrator interventions for individuals identified through a range of new pathways, will focus on achieving positive behavioural change.


Surrey has a robust multi-agency system for tackling and reducing the risk posed by domestic abuse perpetrators, with partners collectively making use of a range of interventions, tools and powers.

However, there is a recognised gap in relation to universal pre-conviction perpetrator interventions focussed on early intervention and behaviour change. This is a gap recognised by all local commissioners and reflected in the jointly agreed Surrey Domestic Abuse Perpetrator Strategy 2021-2023.


Funding of £502,600.82 is provided to Interventions Alliance in 2022/23 for the two aforementioned services (£240,848.70 for the COBI programme and £261,752.12 for the intensive one-to-one interventions).
