What is ENGAGE?

ENGAGE is a voluntary intervention offered to domestic violence defendants at early stages of the court process.  It is designed to provide an early intervention option for people who recognise that domestic and family violence is an issue in their relationships. 
ENGAGE is a free workshop which helps men or women over 18 years of age to manage stress and make positive changes in their lives. ENGAGE participants who meet the eligibility criteria and agree to participate can attend the six hour workshop on a Saturday or across two consecutive week nights.

Where is ENGAGE available?

ENGAGE is currently delivered in Blacktown and Maitland. ENGAGE will expand to a total of nine locations in 2019.
