We are excited to announce that for the first time in a number of years we will be having a dedicated opening function for the annual Behind Closed Doors exhibition. The show, held at the Waitakere Central Library, is the result of collaboration between the local arts community and the social sector, and creatively profiles the issues of family violence in Waitakere. Come join us tonight, 5-7pm at Waitakere Central Library.

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.
