No to Violence has developed a range of resources to let people know that support is available to address violent and abusive behaviours.
A recent survey commissioned by No to Violence found that the majority of men would not know where to go if they were using family violence. This is deeply concerning in the context of more family violence across our communities during the pandemic.
Call to action to increase awareness:
- Order hard copy posters and pamphlets from firstname.lastname@example.org
- Directly print these resources
- Hang them up far and wide
- Tell colleagues from other sectors – including local government shopping centres, anywhere you think would be appropriate – that these resources are available and are an important part of responding to men’s family violence.
Man-facing poster (A4) – posters aimed at men who use violence and their families to let them know support is available. Where to hang? Men’s bathrooms, waiting areas, anywhere where people have time to contemplate.
Sector-facing posters (A3) – posters aimed at increasing awareness of Men’s Referral Service across connected sectors, including alcohol and other drugs, housing and homelessness and other community services. Where to hang? Staff rooms or areas where staff and colleagues come together.
Business cards – short message and phone number to Men’s Referral Service. Perfect to hand out to men who are using violence (when safe). Please contact email@example.com to order copies.
