Auckland Council have released their provisional Local Alcohol Policy (LAP). WAVES Trust, Community Waitakere and Waitakere Community Action on Alcohol Policy Coalition coordinated a joint submission on the LAP last year.
Labour MP Kelvin Davis with support from Korowai Tumanako, a kaupapa Maori sexual violence prevention organisation is organising a hikoi to raise awareness and funds to prevent sexual violence. It kicks off tomorrow 29 May at Waitakere Trusts Stadium.
The latest Policy Watch newsletter is now available. Policy Watch is a current awareness e-news compiled regularly by NZCCSS. It provides a tool for keeping track of emerging issues, policy developments and other relevant news snippets and links.
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.
