New Expert Advisory Group on Family Violence

October 09, 2013 at 5:10 PM

Minister Tariana Turia today has established an independent Expert Advisory Group on Family Violence. Paul von Dadelszen (Chair),  Merepeka Raukawa–Tait is a member of the Taskforce for Action on Violence within Families’ Maori Reference Group, Dr James Prescott is a Families Commissioner, Dr Susan Jane Huhana Hickey is a lecturer at the Auckland University of Technology, Dr Janet Fanslow is  Associate Professor in Mental Health Promotion University of Auckland, Associate Professor Julia Tolmie is the Chairperson of the Family Violence Death Review Committee, Everdina Fuli is a member of the Taskforce for Action on Violence within Families’ Pacific Advisory Group, Jane Stevens is a senior community advisor at Community Waikato, and Associate Professor Peter J. Adams at the University of Auckland.

The EAGFV will 'provide independent strategic advice to assist Government to determine key priority actions to address family violence in New Zealand,” says Minister Turia.

“The Group has a range of expertise and experience in this field and will work towards solutions by the end of 2013.'

“A whole-of-government approach to family violence is vital and means we need to identify where there may be duplication of services or gaps in addressing family violence and ensure there are linkages with other strategic priorities.”
