At the Jenkins Centre We Are ...

The Jenkins Centre offers an integrated domestic abuse service. We offer interventions to support people who have used abuse in their relationships to change their behaviour, whilst also offering support to their (ex) partners.

We are committed to continuing to make our services more accessible by being able to offer interventions in different languages and trying to connect with more communities. Therefore, we are offering an exciting opportunity:

To individuals fluent in languages or with language skills, we are offering to provide and pay for training in how to work with people that have used abuse in relationships and how to deliver interventions. This would then allow these individuals to take the role of sessional workers, who would be paid to facilitate interventions on an ad hoc basis, when required. This would generally be evening work. It is a great way to support people who may have previously not been able to access support and it works well as a second job, due to its ad hoc nature.


Free from Violence and Abuse, Jenkins Centre, is a confidential help and support service that will always put your privacy and safety first. There may however be times when it may be necessary to breach the basic rules of confidentiality for safeguarding purposes.


We understand it can be difficult to talk about your behaviour, we are here to support you to make changes without judgement


It can be hard to solve an issue when you’re isolated and alone. We are here to walk alongside you on your path towards change.


We are here to listen and support your steps towards having healthy and respectful relationships.

We work as part of a Coordinated Community Response (CCR) model that brings services together to ensure we keep survivors safe, hold those that use harmful behaviours to account, and prevent domestic abuse.

We really do know how to help you ...


The Jenkins Centre is part of Freeva a registered charity working towards reducing domestic violence, rape and sexual assault in Leicester, Leicestershire & Rutland. Our vision is to aspire to live in a society where everyone is free from violence and abuse. We do this by:

- Empowering and supporting victims of domestic and sexual violence/abuse
- Challenging abusive behaviours and supporting perpetrators that wish to change.
- Breaking the cycle of violence and abuse
- Building cohesive families and communities

Our priority is to provide high quality effective support to victims and perpetrators irrespective of their backgrounds.

We work closely with other agencies to ensure the right support is in place for you. Some of our services are jointly delivered with Living without Abuse (LWA) and Women’s Aid Leicestershire Limited (WALL).


Our values are based on six main principles. We believe:

That everyone has the right to be free and safe from violence and abuse
That relationships should be built on respect and equality
That education ensures a better future
That with support people have the capacity to change
In working with integrity, honesty, trustworthiness, transparency and within accountability
In creating sustainable change
