Contemporary Projects
Beliefs and cultural change are needed!
NCWA has its own team of male ’champions’ and allies - men and boys of all shape and size, age, race, colour and creed (husbands, partners, sons, fathers, neighbours and work colleagues) who ’live the dream’ - their homes, workplaces and recreation spaces are safe and free from violence and abuse.  They are powerful men who do not need to use their fists or other means to ’control’ and share an abundance of family, friends and means - to enjoy a full and enriched life. 

And the work goes on...
