The National Directory is a searchable online database. It lists information about social service organisations that provide services and programmes for New Zealand families (we call these organisations "Providers").An 0800 Family Violence Information Line (0800 456 450) provides self-help information and connects people to services where appropriate. It is available seven days a week, from 9am to 11pm, with an after-hours message redirecting callers in the case of an emergency.
