The Men’s Project

The Men’s Project has been established to provide leadership on the reduction of violence and other harmful behaviours prevalent among boys and men, and build new approaches to improve their wellbeing and keep families and communities safe.

Our Vision

Good men, respectful relationships, safe communities

Our Mission

To support boys and men to live respectful, accountable and fulfilling lives free from violence.

What The Men’s Project will achieve:

The goals of The Men’s Project are to:

  • promote positive social change around gender and what it means to be a man in the 21st Century
  • reduce violent and other harmful behaviours by men and boys
  • improve men’s wellbeing and relationships.

Build Positive Culture and Attitudes

Prevent violence by driving positive cultural and attitudinal change about masculinity and gender equality through community engagement, advocacy and effective alliances.

Build Effective Interventions

Develop innovative programs that address the underlying drivers of violent and other harmful behaviours, ensure accountability for actions, and restore relationships.

Build Knowledge

Encourage collaboration to improve knowledge about what works in engaging boys and men, changing behaviour and keeping people safe.

Build Capacity

Build the confidence and capacity of the workforce across a range of sectors to recognise and respond to violence and other harmful behaviours.

Our Approach

Our work is based on extensive experience working with boys and men, a holistic approach and strong partnerships.

We strive to complement the work of other organisations by engaging boys and men.

The voice of people affected by violence informs all our work.
