Adolescent Family Violence – Step Up Program

Our Adolescent Family Violence Program, Step Up is delivered in partnership with Meli. This program is primarily an outreach early intervention program where case managers work with young people (age 10 –17) and their families in the home setting through the provision of a family-based, integrated model of case management support to young people who use violence against a parent or carer.

Behaviours may include physical, verbal, emotional, psychological, sexual, financial, cultural or spiritual abuse and they can have a devastating impact on those who are ‘on the receiving end’ of the behaviours and those who also experience living in a violent environment, particularly younger children in the home.

The program focuses on the young person’s relationship with their family and community; recognising that change occurs through supporting the individual in the context of family, friends and community.

To find out more, please read the Step Up Program flyer available here.
