Community Waitakere have partnered with Unitec to research community safety to find out what helps YOU feel safe, connected and secure in your community spaces and places. They are inviting West Aucklanders to take part small group discussion groups about community safety.
The NZ Crime and Safety Survey (NZCASS) provides policy makers, researchers and the public with information about the extent and nature of crime and victimisation in New Zealand. Superu are hosting a seminar to discuss the findings from the survey in Wellington on the 23rd of October.
WAVES Trust is a network organisation committed to strengthening the work of services supporting victims of family violence and sexual violence, and those who hold offenders accountable and support perpetrators to make positive changes to their behaviour.
We provide networking opportunities, support and advocacy for over 50 Waitakere agencies working with people affected by family violence, sexual violence, and child abuse or neglect. We also coordinate violence prevention campaigns and supporting projects to improve the capacity of service delivery in the Waitakere area.
We acknowledge the issues of sexual violence are closely connected with family violence, and our website contains contact information to enable the public to reach services working in Waitakere and links to other networks and organisations working in the Waitemata DHB catchment area, in the Auckland region and nationally.
