Practice standards and frameworks
Victorian minimum standards
Family Safety Victoria released the ‘Men’s Behaviour Change Minimum Standards’ which took effect from 1 July 2018.
It is a requirement within funding agreements with the Victorian Government for delivery of Men’s Behaviour Change Programs that the provider is a member of No to Violence and adheres to the requirements of the Minimum Standards.
Members must comply with the Minimum Standards as a condition of membership, and handle complaints regarding potential non-compliance. Where there is a potential breach of the Minimum Standards, No to Violence will undertake an independent audit and may cancel or suspend membership.

No to Violence resources for working with men who use violence
‘Better than this’ – Outreach resources
It can be better than this, is the message we are looking to send out. Many men who use violence don’t know where to go to get support to change their violent and abusive behaviour. ‘Better than this’ seeks to shift men into contemplating ‘maybe it can be better than this’ and that there are places that can help.
