Tackling Violence is a domestic violence education and prevention program that uses regional rugby league clubs to deliver anti domestic violence messages. The program is supported by the NSW and Australian Governments and led by the Office of Communities.
The program is delivered by rugby League greats David Peachey and Nathan Blacklock, with Mudgin-Gal Aboriginal Women's Corporation to 22 clubs in 18 communities across regional NSW.
In 2012, over 900 men have signed a code of conduct that penalises players for domestic violence offences, attended a domestic violence education workshop and featured in a local community service announcement (CSAs) standing strong against domestic violence.
The 11 CSAs are broadcast on regional TV in July, August and September 2012, during rugby league programming.
