Mission Statement

To support an integrated and co-ordinated response to family violence in Waitākere and to drive local family violence prevention initiatives

About WAVES Trust

WAVES Trust began in 1993 providing networking and support services to local family violence services and advocacy services to victims of family violence at the Waitākere District Court. 

Our current role continues to be providing local family violence sector services with opportunities to network and collaborate with other services. We also provide agencies with information on relevant research, support best practice in family violence intervention, provide training on family violence for social service workers outside the sector, support locally driven violence prevention and public awareness campaigns, and advocate for the sector by producing submissions to local and national government.

We are supported in our work by a vibrant network of NGO and government agencies who work with those affected by family violence, both in West Auckland and other areas of the Auckland region.
