Our Vision is for Women and children in violence free communities living Te Tiriti o Waitangi.

We believe in:

  • Te Tiriti o Waitangi guiding our practice
  • Accountability to ourselves, to women and other key interest groups
  • Diversity
  • All women and children having equitable access to our services
  • Working with women and children in a respectful, confidential, sensitive and non-judgemental manner
  • Living and modelling non violent and non abusive behaviour
  • Providing a quality service by working in an ethical and professional manner
  • Striving to improve our skills through, training, education and supervision
  • Working with a feminist analysis which means an understanding of family violence as gender violence, namely: naming the violence, placing responsibility for violence where it belongs – no victim blaming, recognising the social, historical, cultural and political context in which family violence occurs; and assisting women and children to live without violence
