#Be someone who does something – the role of the bystander in preventing violence.
Join us for a comprehensive discussion about the role of the bystander in preventing violence. We will discuss the challenges, obstacles, and the current social climate impacting the work of practitioners in this space while sharing ideas on what is next in the bystander conversation.
Workshops and Training
Cultural change workshops
MATE is designed on best practices developed over two decades of delivering gender-based violence prevention and education training. Our workshops equip communities with the tools and confidence to address harmful and abusive behaviour.

Youth and LGBTIQ programs
MATE is currently piloting training programs within specific schools and organisations across Australia.
