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.
