Partnering with Men toolbox on domestic violence

Print Friendly

Catalyst Foundation has developed a culturally responsive, evidence based “best practice” domestic violence education and resource Toolbox for men from CALD communities through community engagement processes to enable men to take on the role of community leaders and mentors to influence and empower other men.
The Toolbox focuses on African communities, increasing understanding and awareness of domestic violence through culturally appropriate and relevant strategies. Influential African Australian community leaders not only endorsed but also directly participated in generating the Toolbox.
