Welcome to Ahimsa

Ahimsa is a domestic violence project based in Plymouth, England. We offer a programme to perpetrators of domestic violence. We have more than fifteen years of experience in this field of work, providing our services to the Devon and Cornwall area.

Our services include:

  • Specialist programmes for perpetrators of domestic violence and abuse
  • Support, advice and guidance to victims and survivors of domestic violence and abuse
  • Assessment as evidence in child welfare proceedings where parental contact is being challenged
  • Awareness training for a wide range of professionals who may come into contact with households in which domestic violence and abusive behaviour is taking place

Research findings consistently report that the vast majority of domestic violence is perpetrated by men within heterosexual relationships. We acknowledge domestic violence perpetrated by women and within gay and lesbian relationships. We are able to offer a service that meets the need of anyone seeking help.
