A Family Violence Summit chaired by Sir Wira Gardiner and co-hosted by Justice Minister Amy Adams and Social Development Minister Anne Tolley was held on 7 June 2017 in Wellington.

We asked for comments on these 4 themes:

  • Kaupapa Māori whānau-centred approaches
  • Taking opportunities to intervene earlier
  • Supporting seniors, people with disabilities and migrant communities 


  • Agencies and services that work with people experiencing family violence
