The Partner Link (formerly known as Women’s Safety Service) operates in partnership with Cheshire & Greater Manchester Probation Service and is a confidential service that offers support to women who are known victims of domestic abuse and current partners of men who are undertaking the criminal court mandated programmes. Building Better Relationship (BBR) or Improving Relationships Supporting Change (IR-SC). Women can only be referred to the service by Cheshire & Greater Manchester Probation Service.


The service is confidential to provide known victims and current partners of men undertaking the programmes a link to a women’s safety worker for the duration that the man is required to attend and for up to 6 months after completion.
