JOIN THE REDEMPTION JOURNEY
New Zealand /Aotearoa has the worst domestic violence statistics in the developed world.
It's one of our most significant social issues.
Over 500,000 incidents are estimated to happen every year (80% go unreported), and it costs the country an estimated $4billion ($4,000,000,000) minimum every year (that’s at least $839 for every man, woman and child). And it’s not going away.
Every year, around 13 women, 10 men and 9 children die through domestic violence – an issue that becomes normalised within families, through generations.
It has to stop.
This should never be normal.
SafeMan SafeFamily works to help Men end the cycle of family violence. We do this by supporting them to understand their histories and process it, to heal on the inside. They can then grow in their potential to become a SafeMan.
We know that a child who experiences growing up in a violent home is more likely to replay the cycle of family violence. From Man to Child – Child to Man – Victim to Perpetrator – Perpetrator to Victim.
“Uncover, Discover, Recover” is a SafeMan SafeFamily peer-led, professionally supported journey to help men understand the roots of their behaviour. They learn tools to manage conflict and how to use new ways of communicating that leads to them becoming violence-free.
