Mentors in Violence Prevention

The Mentors in Violence Prevention Program (MVP) provides skills to help end violence in our communities by helping us learn how to be effective bystanders.

Bystanders can confront, interrupt, or prevent violence. The training is for people from the general community. The workshop develops skills for concrete options you can safely use in a range of situations.

The workshops were delivered far and wide in 2021 and we are continuing our travels in 2022. They are funded by a grant from the Tasmanian Community Fund.  

The workshops are being delivered by a partnership between Women's Health Tasmania, Hobart Women's Shelter, Engender Equality and Women's Legal Service.

Come along, meet nice folk, and chat!
