We provide a range of programs for men who use violence in the home. We have services that are tailored specifically for fathers, who are encouraged to change their behaviour for the sake of their children, and for adolescents who are displaying violent behaviours within the family.
Our programs assist men to become more aware of, and responsible for their use of abusive behaviours and support them to change for the better. They have been successful in improving family relationships and reducing the likelihood of violence being perpetrated again.
If you are worried about your behaviour we can support you to change so you can be a safer partner and father to your children. Our programs will support you to stop the violence.
Caring Dads is a 17-week, specialised group intervention program for fathers who are physically or emotionally abusive and neglectful towards their children and the children’s mothers.
The group learning environment supports men through a combination of active group discussions, exercises and homework. There is No Fee to attend.
