My wife said if I didn’t sort my crap, it was over. She had said this before, but I brushed it off. But my kids and my wife gave me an ultimatum this time, and so I decided that I needed to do something.
SVS Living Safe’s Non-Violence Programme (NVP) for men is for those who attend of their own choice as well as for those who are mandated by protection order or criminal charge. We collected survey data on the mandated participants who attended this programme for the year ended 30 June 2019.
Our youth programme teaches kids affected by family and other forms of violence how to be safe in the first instance. Everyone learns how to prepare and use a safety plan. Evaluations of the programme for the year ended June 2019 show 100% of respondents now have a safety plan and can identify at least one thing they can do to make themselves safe.
