The aim of this study was to conduct a review of current intimate partner violence (IPV) perpetrator provision within the United Kingdom. The objective of the review was to explore the characteristics of intervention programs currently within the United Kingdom. Using a questionnaire-based design, we explored characteristics of current programs including program structure, program logistics, facilitator characteristics, and facilitator insights around the programs. A number of organizations completed the questionnaire (N = 21), and a review of existing literature was performed to explore the general characteristics of programs being delivered within the United Kingdom. Within the sample, we found that the feminist approach was still influential, but that facilitators also reported a need to ensure programs are more inclusive in their service provision to represent the diversity of perpetrators found. An unexpected finding from this study was the resistance of many organizations to engage with the research through an apparent suspicion of the agenda and motivation of the research team.
