Our Network represents over 37 government and non-governmental agencies working together to end family violence in Wellington. We would love to have you join us!
If you are working in any capacity of Wellington family violence prevention and service provision, you are most definitely welcome to become part of our supportive community.
Working in our sector is demanding and at times harrowing. Getting together once a month for interactive support, discussion and professional nourishment is so good for the soul.
