Ahead of Father’s Day, Make a Change’s Regional Practice Lead, Joanna Szuryn, has published a blog reflecting on the impact of behaviour change work for fathers and their children.
About Make a Change
Make a Change (MAC) is a community-wide, early response approach to people who are concerned that they are using harmful behaviours in their intimate, or previously intimate, relationships. It was developed by Respect in partnership with Women’s Aid Federation England.
Participants join a group programme (or in some cases work with Make a Change one-to-one) to work on understanding their behaviour in relationships, and receive support to make positive changes for themselves, their partner or ex-partner, and their children (if they have any). Separate, confidential support is also offered to their partner or ex-partner.
Make a Change works directly with people using harmful and controlling behaviours, while also empowering the people around them – local communities, friends, families and professionals – to see themselves as part of the solution, and to work together to address the problem.
