About No to Violence

No to Violence works to bring about the changes our community needs to eliminate men’s use of family violence. For 25 years, we have been working directly with men who use family violence to support them to change.  Our expertise in their beliefs, attitudes, behaviour and choices has enabled us to develop standards, programs and training, lead policy development, and fulfil our role as the largest peak body in Australia for organisations and individuals working with men to end family violence. As a pro-feminist organisation, the safety of women and children is at the centre of everything we do. It is by ending men’s violence that families can have happier, safer and more fulfilled lives. 

NTV is an equal employment opportunity employer and is committed to attracting and retaining a diverse workforce that reflects the community we serve.
