About Us

The Centre for Non-Violence has been delivering quality services to the community since 1990.

Gender and social equality in a violence-free world

Centre for Non-Violence is committed to safety and equality, especially for women and girls; culturally safe communities, where perpetrators of violence are held accountable and patriarchal norms are challenged; formal system reform that addresses male privilege; and a shift in the dialogue, which supports feminist principles.
