Family Violence Summit

Closed 16 Jun 2017

Opened 23 May 2017


A Family Violence Summit chaired by Sir Wira Gardiner and co-hosted by Justice Minister Amy Adams and Social Development Minister Anne Tolley is being held on June 7 in Wellington. 

The Summit  is an opportunity for people from across the sector to come together and build on the conversations to date about breaking the patterns of family violence and working together effectively, and to provide advice and feedback on these issues.
Although not everyone could be invited, we'd value and appreciate your feedback on the 4 workshop themes, along with any other views about how we can better join up family violence services. 
You can comment on as many of the 4 themes as you wish:
  • Helping children and their whānau to live without family violence
  • Kaupapa Māori whānau-centred approaches
  • Taking opportunities to intervene earlier
  • Supporting seniors, people with disabilities and migrant communities 
Your feedback will be added to the learnings from the day. 


  • Agencies and services that work with people experiencing family violence
