From 2017 onwards, under the Second National Strategy on Sexual, Domestic and Gender-based Violence, roll-out began of a uniform national domestic violence intervention programme, the Choices Programme. This programme works with men who engage in domestic abuse and provides support to their partners/ex-partners. It involves a number of different components including one to one work, group work and partner support work. Choices is currently being delivered in 18 site locations across the State by the three organisations mentioned above. Annual state funding of approximately €950,000 is being made available in 2019 to support the programme.
