The Domestic Violence Resource Service (Mackay & Region) runs a men’s behaviour change program — Stepping Up — in the Isaac mining region.
The program is funded by the State Government to work directly with men throughout the Isaac mining region who have identified as currently using violence within their relationships. Stepping Up provides opportunities for men to understand better the impact violence has on their families/relationships, while also assisting them to find alternative, more appropriate behaviours. The program initially works with men through one-on-one counselling with the view to establish group sessions.
Alongside this program, the Domestic Violence Resource Service has partnered with Moranbah District Support Services to provide a specialised Domestic Violence Women’s Counsellor.
Both services are available at no cost to participants.
