AV are one of Victoria’s largest providers of Family Violence Services and Family Services, providing specialist domestic violence support to 2000+ individuals per year. Services range from men’s behaviour groups, such as Caring Dads, to programs supporting survivors and children, such as TRAK Forward.
What are we doing?
Caring Dads is based on an internationally renowned Men’s Behaviour Change Program (MBCP) that focusses on engagement and motivation to support fathers to stop controlling, abusive and neglectful behaviour. The program offers perpetrators individual sessions with a specialist DFV worker, adjunct to group work. This delivers a tailored approach to each father, appropriate to their situation, to improve engagement and address behaviours causing harm to their partners and children.
