We are experienced in facilitating violence prevention groups, ‘one to one’ counselling, delivering Building Safe Relationships / Protective Behaviours in primary and high schools and Specialist Health MOT’s for men.  We would like to share with you some of our beliefs about successful interventions with boys and men to help reduce the risk of harm to self and others, and how we can develop better support services and resources for males.
