The Campaign for Action on Family Violence
This website has information about family violence, what it is, where to get help and how you can help if you know someone affected by family violence.
Children are affected by family violence whether they see it, hear it or just know about it. If you are concerned about a child you know, we encourage you to take action.
It is friends and whanau that people living with violence turn to first. Don't be a cardboard cut-out, find out what you can do to help - not just in a crisis but in everyday situations.
Sports clubs, employers, local councils, iwi and social service organisations all over New Zealand are getting involved in the Campaign and helping to change the way people think and act about all forms of family violence.
Sadly family violence escalates over the summer months. Help is the best gift you can give to someone who is living with violence at home. Kate tells her story about whatís the best kind of help:
The festive season and summer holiday time is when we enjoy being with family and friends, we relax and take stock of the year thatís ending.
Communities all over New Zealand are saying Family Violence is not OK. Take a look.

I was living with my mother and two younger brothers. My dad passed away 10 years ago this year. I had grown up with abuse all my life but after my dad passed away it got very intense.
