Engage2Change is a registered Men's Behaviour Change program that assists men who have used violence and abuse towards family members and who want to improve the way they behave in their relationship.
The 12 week program is for men who are committed and ready to work towards non-violence and self-responsibility in a respectful and confidential group setting.
Through communications and self-reflection, the group explores the impacts of abuse and violence on partners, children, selves and others. Participants gain practical tools for responding to conflict and how to take responsibility for safety.
Our specialist Women and Children's Advocate offers support to the participant's current and former partners and their children.
"We have learned from each other, we've broken through barriers together, and we don't let shame of worries get in the way of becoming the men we want to be." From 'Once Were Worriers', a letter written by local Men's Behaviour Change program participants.
Fixed Address is an innovative program that aims to keep women and children safe in their own homes, by providing transitional housing options and case management support for men who have used violence and have been excluded from returning to their shared home.
*Engage2Change and Fixed Address are offered in the Port Macquarie-Hastings region by Liberty, as a partner in the Mid North Coast Consortium which includes Kempsey Families Inc and Warrina Domestic & Family Specialist Services in Coffs Harbour.
