Vic Tamati

Founder and Trustee

Safe Man Safe Family


Safe Man Safe Family was founded in 2009 by ex victim and ex-perpetrator of violence, Vic Tamati. After living the painful journey from childhood victim to adult perpetrator in vivid technicolour – delinquency, drugs, gang membership, prison – Vic finally broke free of his life of violence and has been on a journey of recovery ever since.

Over this time, he has developed a stopping violence programme that genuinely engages those who are caught up in lifestyle violence – a peer-led solution that recognises that perpetrators of violence have often previously been victims.

Safe Man Safe Family is committed to walking with perpetrators of any ethnicity or faith on their journey to become violence free.
