Family Violence Community Information Session


On 20 March at 8.00am at FamilyCare in Welsford Street, Shepparton, the Goulburn Family Violence Executive are presenting a free community information session about Family Violence and Men’s Behaviour Change Program.


The session will present general information to help you to understand how Uniting’s Men’s Behaviour Change Program, recognises and respects the experience of women and children as victims and survivors of family violence. The program challenges male privilege and entitlement by recognising the gendered nature of family violence – that male family violence is an expression of gendered power, which men have individually and collectively over women.

Information about local services will also be available.

For more information or to register call reception on 5823 7059 .
