Discover our mission, our vision and our vital contribution to ending family violence in Wellington
Who we are
We are an integrated community of agencies working together to end family/whānau violence in Wellington. Our Network of proactive support agencies represent both non-government and government organisations.
Each month our Network agencies meet for mutual support and encouragement. We discuss topical agency issues relating to ending family violence. The meetings are also a springboard for engaging in relevant training and education opportunities.
Together, our member agencies cover the full spectrum of services for victims and families, including LGBTQAI relationships, over all forms of family violence. This also includes working with the perpetrators of family violence. This work is often referred to our agencies by NZ Police.
If you are from an agency actively involved in any way with ending family violence in Wellington, we would love to see you at our meetings! We all need support in this battle. We are dedicated to seeing you equipped, empowered and encouraged in the vital work you do to achieve our shared mission.

Family violence training for workplaces & community groups
We offer training to any organisation, business or community group on how to recognise and effectively respond to family violence in the workplace or in the community.
Maybe your organisation or business has front-line staff who are likely to come across incidences of family violence as part of the work they do. We can equip them with the tools needed to effectively identify and respond to these situations. Learn more.
