No to Violence - Working together to end men's family violence
When you donate to No to Violence, you are actively supporting men to make the choice to stop their violence and take responsibility for their behaviour. For 25 years, No to Violence has spoken to thousands of men, led the practice development of men's behaviour change work and advocated for the social and political change needed to keep women and children safe. Please make a donation today and be part of the movement to end men's family violence.
Ensure counselling for men on waiting lists
There are thousands of men on waiting lists for Men's Behaviour Change Programs. Men on waiting lists are likely to continue their abusive behaviours, less likely to join a program when a place becomes available and less likely to complete the program.
$75 could provide a counselling session for a man waiting for a Men's Behaviour Change Program.
Support new training with Koori Communities
Culturally appropriate family violence services for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities are vital. No to Violence is partnering with regional Indigenous-led organisations to co-design and co-deliver new, evidence-informed, culturally safe and appropriate training on working with men who use family violence in Koori Communities.
Training and travel costs can be a barrier to being part of this process and attending training. $280 can cover the cost for one worker to participate in the training in a regional centre.
Provide support for homelessness workers
Homelessness workers regularly engage with men who use family violence. Workers must have the knowledge, skills and capabilities to work with men who use family violence to ensure the safety of women and children. In a sector that is stretched for resources, the necessary training is not always available.
$320 could provide a two-day intensive training course for a worker to develop the skills and knowledge they need to work safely with men who use family violence.
The safety of women and children is central to what we do. Working with men to help them change their attitudes and behaviour is critical to bring an end to all forms of abuse. Your gift will help ensure that the right interventions are available at the right time to prevent men's family violence.
