Whānau Centred

Our Family-Centred Service aims to foster wellbeing/mauri ora for families and whānau who have experienced or are at risk of experiencing family violence.

Family/whānau perspectives, safety, needs and aspirations are at the centre of services provided. For families/whānau where there has been family violence, support is provided to ensure:

  • Their needs are met through wrap-around support which is effective, holistic, culturally appropriate and responsive.
  • They become strong and resilient and able to identify their own ways to restore safety and wellbeing/mauri ora.
  • Lasting, positive change is achieved for them through the support of family, whānau and the wider community.
