Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander centre for males

 

Overview

The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander centre for males, situated in Preston, Victoria, is run by the Victorian Aboriginal Community Services Association Limited (VACSAL) and the Victorian Aboriginal Health Services (VAHS). This program provides a safe and welcoming environment for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander males dealing with complex issues, including family violence. Men are referred to this program through various community services. They receive support and counselling through the program, and their progress and attendance is monitored. This process involves the husband/father, wife/mother, and the children. Services are available to the whole family.

The main aim of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander centre for males is to culturally strengthen the family, bring awareness and responsibility to the male for their actions and their role as a father/husband, and to keep the family together.
