How can Family Safety Services help you make a difference?
Our ‘Respectful Relationships’ programmes make a difference by providing:
Our Couples and Family Counselling work make a difference providing a safe and structured environment so that participants can identify their goals, learn new skills to achieve their goals, and have support while they make the necessary changes and put them into effect.
By participating in community initiatives to raise awareness about strategies for preventing and reducing violence and abuse.
By supporting those who have been harmed by acts of violence and abuse to restore their own and their family’s well-being.
Our programmes demonstrate the skills and behaviours that lead to safe and respectful families, provide effective responses to family violence episodes through 1-1 counselling, group programmes for men, women and youth, and support for families and demonstrate the skills and behaviours of safe and respectful relationships.
‘Practicing Respectful Relationships’
We begin by ‘Being the Change’ by being positive role models, stepping up to bear witness, understanding ourselves & challenging abusive behaviour.
