Type of Services Offered:
Domestic and family violence can have a profound impact on a family. UnitingCare is passionate about working with families and children to move toward safe and comfortable family lives. We offer flexible and innovative support to vulnerable children, young people, families, women and men experiencing domestic and family violence. We work together to understand their circumstances and plan for the future.
One of the services that UnitingCare offers on the Sunshine Coast is the Sunshine Coast Integrated Family Safety Reponses Service. This service includes a men's behaviour change program called Men Choosing Change, a Woman's Advocacy Service and a Child Counselling Service for children who have experienced or are experiencing Domestic and Family Violence.
Men Choosing Change is a group program that provides the opportunity for men to take responsibility for their use of behaviours in intimate relationships. We help men develop and maintain respectful attitudes and behaviours with in their family and their intimate partner relationships. Change can be challenging and confronting and in this program we support and guide men on a path to effective change over a 16 week group program. Men engage in a minimum of two assessment sessions to establish their goals and suitability for the program before they are provided with group start date. We work with men who are mandated, on Intervention Orders as well as voluntary clients. Men are welcome to self refer. Men Choosing Change also accepts referrals from any other service with signed consent.
