Men’s Programmes


Men's Programmes

Working in the VEP field requires us to not only support and educate victims of crime and violence, but also to reach out to those at risk for committing violence, especially within families and relationships.

Rian, with his vast experience of working with offenders in the DSD Probation Team, co-ordinates and oversees our newest programme, focusing on services for men and perpetrators.


The programme goals include:

Addressing the needs of the clients in dealing with their own emotions in a more constructive manner

Identifying their own risks

Working towards not becoming or remaining violent and

To limit other related anti-social behaviours.

The programme is currently available in Hout Bay, Ocean View, Masiphumelele and the Drakenstein area.


The one on one therapeutic sessions are available as long as the client needs.

The highly interactive and the group work / group therapy focuses on skills development and positive behaviour change.

Rian also conducts training for community volunteers in mentoring and peer-education.
