Working With the Man

We sat down with Simon Port from EveryMan Australia to talk about violence prevention and the EveryMan Australia program that focuses on the safety of women and children by working with men to take responsibility for abusive, violent, coercive, or controlling behaviours.

Working With the Man provides the support men need to learn to live free of violence - by understanding and acknowledging the effects of their abusive behaviour.  

Simon is the Manager of Violence Prevention Services at EveryMan and has a proven passion for social justice and assisting men and their families to live better lives without violence and fear.  Simon’s worldly and clinical experience allows him to support men while holding them to account for unacceptable behaviour. 

Simon has a degree in social science and is one of a handful of individuals in Australia that has completed a Graduate Certificate in Men’s Behaviour Change Individual and Group-work Interventions delivered by NSW Health Education Centre Against Violence.

As COVID lockdown comes to an end, hibernating bears hold some lessons for readjusting to 'normal' life

As COVID lockdowns become a thing of the past and life begins to resemble some sort of normality we are reminded that it isn't always easy emerging out of hibernation and slotting right back into our normal routines. The article below serves as a reminder that we need to be gentle with ourselves when our lives change drastically. Read more about bears and how they emerge out of hibernation - they could teach us a thing or two.

EveryMan of the Month

You may be familiar with our EveryMan of the Month initiative that recognises men who’ve done something great - a contribution, an invention, an act of kindness or generosity. There’s no science behind it, just finding a story that inspires, makes us laugh, or is moving in some way.

We are working towards transforming a news culture that rarely finds good news stories about men and genuine stories about real men doing good stuff in the world.

If you know a man or men doing great things, why not nominate them for EveryMan of the Month?
