Four programs that help address men’s violence against women have received $5.28 million in funding for regional and rural NSW areas.

The Men’s Behaviour Change Program will help engage over 1,300 abusive men to take responsibility for their violent behaviour and offer counselling and case support, as well as referrals to women and children impacted by men’s violence.

Minister for the Prevention of Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Pru Goward said the programs will put the focus back on men to take responsibility for their violent behaviour.

“These programs are designed specifically for men who want to change their behaviour and want to be accountable for their actions,”  Goward said.

The four programs will be delivered by local NGOs including:

BaptistCare NSW and ACT in Campbelltown
BaptistCare NSW and ACT in Tuggerah
Men and Family Centre in Lismore and Tweed Heads
Kempsey Family Support Service in Coffs Harbour
