About the position

Covering the Central Grampians and Wimmera area, the Family Safety Contact Worker within The Men’s Behaviour Change Program (MBCP) provides responses to partners and/or ex partners of perpetrators of family violence who are participating in the MBCP, with the aim to reduce violence and enhance the safety of victim survivors experiencing or recovering from family violence.

Men’s Behaviour Change Programs aim to promote the safety of victim survivors by holding perpetrators accountable for their use of violence towards family members and by changing their attitudes and behaviour. Services for men include case management, individual intake assessments, individual counselling, family safety contact and Men’s Behaviour Change group work provided in the evenings at our offices in Stawell, Horsham and in future will be held in Ararat.

Contact with women and children is integral to men's behaviour change programs. Program providers have a responsibility and duty of care to ensure that a man's participation does not endanger his family or exacerbate abuse. Furthermore, providers also have a duty to provide information and support that can enhance women's and children's decision making and recovery.
