Pathways History

In 1994, a steering group was formed to examine the gaps in services for the people of Barnsley who were experiencing domestic abuse.  The steering group consisted of the Police, Probation, Relate, SocialCare and other local statutory and voluntary groups.  From these meetings, Barnsley DV Group was born. A small amount of funding was secured and BDVG opened its doors in March 1995.

Our Mission
