About the program

We are looking for a champion to join our NO MORE program!

NO MORE is a Northern Territory-wide Aboriginal initiative that works with the community to develop local responses to reduce the incidence of domestic and family violence (DFV). We do this by raising awareness, educating and mobilising individuals, groups and communities to change attitudes and behaviours towards women and children. NO MORE encompasses a dynamic process of change through developing community leadership, responsibility and action, and adapting to the needs of the community. It is an evidenced based program using the nationally accepted drivers of DFV as the base for making change.
