Launch of ECCNSW Men Against Violence (MAV) toolkit

by Esther Lozano - Tuesday, 20 August 2019

In 2018 the Ethnic Communities’ Council of NSW (ECCNSW) was provided with funding by the Department of Social Services (DSS) to implement a project referred to as the MAV Project (Men Against Violence) as part of a broader national approach to tackle domestic violence.
 
This project is now contributing to the research in the National Plan to Reduce Violence Against Women and their Children 2010-2022.
 
The MAV project was funded to enable ECCNSW to engage Wellbeing Connectors (WB’s) from within the Arabic and Punjabi speaking communities to work in these communities and help create positive attitudes and behaviours towards women in their own cultures, and those of other cultures.
 
Two video resources are now available in Punjabi and Arabic to initiate conversations in the community and highlight the impact that a simple interaction can have to influence meaningful change.
