Run by Craig Taunton, the RESPECT project focuses on educating boys and young men about the nature and causes of Domestic Violence and how they can lend their voices and lives to being active agents in preventing it. This primary school based project utilises music making over a period of 10-12 weeks with highly trained facilitators to generate an original song that transforms young men into active agents of social change and role models in their schools. This project is currently being assessed by Murdoch university as a model project that leads to long term change in the boys that are a part of it. Funding comes from The Smith Family’s Community for Children project.
Bankstown Communities for Children Facilitating Partner is funded by the Australian Government and facilitated in Bankstown by The Smith Family
