About the Centre

Welcome to the Men and Family Centre

 

The Men and Family Centre has been running Men’s Behaviour Change Programs since 1993, and is one of only a handful of organisations in NSW accredited to do so by the Department of Attorney General and Justice.

 

The Men and Family Centre is a professional team of men and women who primarily work to end male violence against women and children. This involves challenging traditional masculinities that are often based on concepts of status, power, strength, avoidance of emotional expression, ownership and control.

 

These characteristics make a poisonous mix that are harmful to women and children and damage the man who subscribes to them.

 

In Australia, a man kills a woman every five days. We want this to end, which is why we do the work we do.
The Men and Family Centre is funded by Women NSW, and by the NSW Department of Family and Community Services.
