Enough is Enough Anti Violence Movement Inc. was established in 1994 after the murder of Michael Marslew. He was a university student who was gunned down during a robbery at Pizza Hut, Jannali NSW. His father, Ken Marslew – through the devastation of losing his son – saw the need for a holistic approach for the needs of victims of crime, violence, anti-social behaviour and later road trauma.
Over time, Enough is Enough has developed into an organisation with a mix of extremely equipped full time administration, program development, presentation, psychology and counselling staff.
Enough is Enough strives to maintain three factors of change which are long term commitment to change, encouraging personal responsibility and ensuring everyone has access to key education to develop strategies in regard to changing society views.
The strength of Enough is Enough is in choosing to do what is just. Our values are all about openness, honesty, group decision making, commitment and a drive for continuous improvement.
Respect for each other – the embracing of diversity, enriched by openness, sharing, trust, teamwork and involvement.
Integrity – doing what we say we will do.
High performance – the commitment to achieving outstanding results and stretching our capabilities.
The courage to lead change – accepting the responsibility to inspire and promote positive change in the face of adversity.
