How we can help
Family violence is a serious issue affecting many families in New Zealand, particularly in Pacific and Māori communities. The Fono supports and advocates for those affected by family violence by providing pathways or programmes to raise awareness, to heal and to prevent it from happening.
We're a short-term intervention service for Pacific whanau referred by the NZ Police, who have experienced harm or violence in the home.
We offer an 18-week non-violence programme for men and women who live in Auckland. Designed to address beliefs and behaviours around family violence.
A free 10-week safety programme, designed to help you deal with the effects of violence, feel more confident and take steps to move forward with your life.
To create strong, resilient communities so whānau can live violence-free and eliminate violence for future generations. We provide free long-term recovery support for whānau, after completing a non-violence or safety programme.
