The Men and Family Centre
We are an accredited provider of group programs for men who want to stop hurting and frightening their partners and children, and support programs for women who are partners of men who use violence. We provide programs in Lismore and Tweed Heads.
Abuse and violence are not just physical. They can also be verbal, emotional, social, psychological and sexual. It takes courage to discuss these things. However, the rewards can be enormous.
Your relationships can be caring and respectful. Your time with your partner and children can be fulfilling and happy.
