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.
By donating to No to Violence, you are supporting men who use violence to change their beliefs, attitudes, behaviour and choices, ensuring the safety of partners, women and children.
No To Violence is only one part of the sector, working alongside and supporting the work of women’s services. But the evidence shows that working directly, and effectively, with men to change their behaviour can contribute to the safety of families.
Please make a donation today to join the movement and end men’s family violence.
Ensure counselling for men on waiting lists
There are thousands of men on waiting lists for Men’s Behaviours 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. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations and communities carry out extraordinary work to end domestic and family violence.
No to Violence is proud to be working with Aboriginal led and controlled agencies 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 attend a session in a regional centre.
Provide support for homelessness workers
Homelessness workers regularly engage with men who use family violence. It is essential that workers 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 stretched for resources, the necessary training is not always available. $400 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.
