The Isniin Family Violence Prevention Program’s primary concern is upholding the safety of women and children. A specialised family violence women’s worker from the Melboure or Perth will contact the partners and ex-partners of men who attend MBCP (a condition of joining the program) to provide women with safety advice, support and information. We do not make judgments about women’s relationships or choice.
