Eligibility requirement
Specialist counselling service and groups support women and children impacted by family violence. A Men’s Behaviour Change Program is available for men wanting to end their use of controlling and abusive behaviours (including violent incidents) and other problematic behaviour in their relationships. A Men’s Case Management Program offers individual support for men aged 18 years and over who want to take responsibility for and change their behaviour, but who are struggling with other challenges that are making change difficult. These challenges may include housing difficulties and homelessness, drug and alcohol use, and/or mental health issues.
