NIRODAH has a wonderful relationship with the Melbourne Storm Rugby Club.
We have delivered Be the Hero! training to all U/18 and U/20 players for the past four years as well as specific Certificate IV Training in Youth Services for specific players.
In 2013 NIRODAH , The Victorian Women’s Trust and Melbourne Storm partnered to enable delivery of Be the Hero! into Victorian schools where there is a significant population of Aboriginal students. We have just completed this training in 12 Victorian schools.
We expect that this partnership with Melbourne Storm will allow a greater penetration of the program into schools across Victoria.

This year NIRODAH has been contracted to deliver a violence prevention program to members of the U/17, U/19 and U/21 National State Netball teams.
Utilising key aspects from the Be the Hero! program, NIRODAH created a specialised program for young women called Expect Respect. The program was delivered at the National Championships at Canberra and Darwin where we received overwhelmingly positive feedback from players and staff.
Resultingly, NIRODAH has been contracted to create the content for a web based version of the program that will be utilised to train all participants who are members of elite development squads in their States and Territories.

Sons of the West
Preventing Family Violence
Below is a synopsis of the session NIRODAH runs as part of the 'Sons of the West' program.
The session investigates the positive role that men can play in reducing violence against women. Participants learn about the extent of this issue in our local community and discuss the key drivers of the behaviour.
Most men want to know how they can help create a community where women, girls and children are not exposed to violence. The key focus of the evening is to provide skills and knowledge to participants in how to be significant change makers by learning to model respectful behaviour to other men and boys.
The session's focus is upon the examination of the factors that lead to family violence and how this can be prevented. Topics include:
