Family Violence
Group programs

Moving forward. Together.

Family violence groups offer a safe and respectful environment to focus on prevention, support and recovery.

Family violence support groups

You are not alone.

Family violence groups are an opportunity to discuss experiences with others in a supportive environment.

Our groups include:
Stepping Out

The Stepping Out program is an 8-week support group for women who have experienced family violence.

Topics covered in this program include:

  • Defining family violence
  • Exploring women's and children's experiences of family violence
  • Talking about different types of family violence and their impact
  • Discussing rights to physical and emotional safety.
Men's Behaviour Change Program

Our Men’s Behavior Change Program provides group programs for men who use violence against their families.

The program provides 20-week sessions to respectfully engage men in dialog to support them in taking responsibility for their violence and abuse.

The program also provides support and safety planning for affected family members.

Adolescent Violence in the Home

Adolescent Violence in the Home affects all types of families and can be directed towards parents, carers or siblings.

We appoint an Adolescent Family Violence specialist to help support families who are affected by this issue. Our specialists provide management, intervention and support services to young people and their families so they can establish non-violent ways of expressing anger and other safe behaviours. We also have several families take part in a 10-week support group called `Step Up' which focuses on establishing respectful and peaceful problem-solving skills and ways of communicating with others.
The South Asian Men's Behaviour Change Program

This cultural group program is for men who use violence against women and their families with a particular focus on the cultural reasons that influence the violence.

The program provides 20-week sessions to respectfully engage men in dialog to support them in taking responsibility for their violence and abuse.

The program also provides support and safety planning for the affected family members.
