CONSULTANCY TO LOCAL GOVERNMENT
'Our council has had its share of youth workers, but our problems just keep escalating. Maybe if we did more work with fathers we would have less issues with their kids when they become teenagers.'
“I first met Rob Koch at an LG Pro
conference where he presented on
engaging men. This led to involving
Rob in some initiatives in our LGA
and some further training he
conducted at the City of Casey.
From the first encounter I found him
open, helpful and supportive.
He injects his enthusiasm, empathy,
knowledge and life experience to
support everyone he meets, enabling
each individual to achieve the best
results for themselves, and ultimately
those closest to them.”
Community Development Officer
"Evidence is now undisputed,
just mothers, are a vital key to
producing positive outcomes
for children, families and society.
Traditionally services have
revolved around mum and the
kids but in many cases unless
Dad is involved in the service
or intervention the impact on
the family is often minimal."

ROB KOCH, Principal Consultant of BETTER MEN Australiawas the first person to be appointed full-time in Australian local government to support the needs of men. Rob developed a reputation for innovation in his employment for four years with Victoria’s largest municipality, the City of Casey, pioneering many successful initiatives, partnerships and programs.
Most councils do not have the resources to create a similar ‘Men’s Programs’ position, but much can be achieved for a fraction of the cost through part-time contracting, or consulting to determine the most cost-effective priorities and initiatives.
Rob and his associates at BETTER MEN Australia are available to help your local council ensure the needs of men, especially fathers and their families, are addressed.
