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.
Fifty community partners of the Itís not OK campaign against family violence, from Northland to Southland, gathered in Wellington in March 2014.

My father's violence knew no bounds. He'd do whatever it took to hurt us children, punch us with fists, smash us with bottles, kick us, whack us with sticks or belts. He beat the living daylights out of us - not for anything.
