Violence Prevention Programmes

Violence prevention programmes take a strengths-based approach underpinned by Pasifika core values and principles to promote better wellbeing by preventing violence.

We treat all clients with courtesy, respect and confidentiality, and work with families, communities, other agencies and professionals to support families affected by violence.

Programmes are based on empowering our Pacific people to take ownership of family violence within families and communities, working towards achieving well being in Pacific families.

Violence prevention programmes focus on:

  • Working with families experiencing violence within their family group
  • Restoring safety and wellbeing where family violence has occurred
  • Supporting families with access to other services
  • Achieving long-term changes for the families and the wider community
