For Baby’s Sake 


For Baby's Sake aims to bring an end to domestic abuse and give babies the best possible start in life. It is the UK’s first whole family change programme which starts in

pregnancy, continues until the

baby is aged two and works

with both mother and father,

whether or not they are a couple

when they join the programme or subsequently.

Areas covered


Since 2015, For Baby’s Sake has been delivered in two prototype sites, in Hertfordshire and West Central London, and has touched the lives of over 600 men, women, babies and children so far.

In 2019 we expanded to Cambridgeshire and Blackpool

Domestic abuse has a devastating ripple effect across families, generations and society. For Baby’s Sake offers a new way genuinely to break the cycle. Rolling it out requires pioneering partners, including local councils, philanthropists and charitable trusts, as well as ambassadors who can use their voice and influence to champion the cause. Together, we can empower families to change their life chances and give babies the best start in life.


The final report of the independent evaluation of For Baby’s Sake, published in May 2020, has found that the programme ‘fills an important gap in provision’ through its ‘unique approach’ which overcomes key limitations to responding to domestic abuse.  The in-depth evaluation was led by King’s College London and involved academics from University of Warwick, University of Central Lancashire, University of Cambridge and McMaster University, Canada. 


The evaluation covers the operation of For Baby’s Sake during the prototype phase in two sites in Hertfordshire and London from 2015-2019 and includes evidence from practitioners, stakeholders and a sample of parents who agreed to be interviewed during the course of the evaluation
