e-MATE

e-MATE, evolving from PEARL, will engage with men who have used violence in a participatory research process to investigate whether the concept of a healthy relationships website or mobile application is acceptable to them and how it may connect with services such as men’s behaviour change programmes.

A prototype of the tool will be developed as part of this project, and feedback from focus groups with men will enable further development to ensure it resonates with end-users.
