Administrative history

The Victoria Family Violence Prevention Society (formerly Victoria Family Counselling for Men Society) provided counselling and treatment programs for men who were violent in their intimate relationships, and provided support for their partners, with the mission to stop the abuse of women by their intimate partners thus breaking the cyclic and the often inter-generational pattern of family violence.

Custodial history
