About the program

Fixed Address- Intensive Case Management engages men who have used domestic violence in past or current relationships, and those at risk of incarceration due to re-offending.

The program works closely with NSW Police, NSW Corrections and with men being released from incarceration, to provide intensive case management to reduce the risk of re-incarceration.

The program works with men in a respectful, targeted way with the focus on:

  • case management focusing on prevention and earlier intervention
  • support to impacted women and children to reduce risk
  • reducing ADVO breaches and immediate reoffending
  • supporting the man’s behaviour change engagement

The program provides men with long-term intensive case management for up to 12 months and access points to support services, with the goal of staying out of the criminal justice system.

Locations

The Fixed Address program is delivered in Kempsey, the Nambucca Valley, Coffs Harbour and Port Macquarie on the Mid North Coast, NSW.

Case Management

While each case management plan is developed individually, it may include:

  • support with getting legal representation for family law, and access to children
  • referrals to therapeutic supports, counselling or medical intervention
  • safety planning for women and their families, with education around ADVO conditions
  • support during the 16-week Men’s Behaviour Change program (Engage2Change)
  • referrals for support with drug and alcohol issues
  • help finding alternative accommodation to avoid homelessness
  • advocacy and support with external agencies, NSW Police and other service providers
  • case coordination support such as case meetings and other appointments
  • referral of women and children to the Fixed Address Women and Children’s Advocate, whether they are a current partner or former partner

 

How to access the program

Men can access the program directly, or be referred by external agencies, service providers, NSW Police (with Domestic Violence Suspect Target Management Plan holding priority), court processes, partners or family members.
