Whānau Harm Reduction


Our Whānau Harm Reduction programme offers a comprehensive approach to addressing family violence in our community. Through close collaboration with law enforcement and community partners, we provide tailored support services to individuals and families experiencing harm.

Our programmes includes targeted interventions for men aged 18 and over, offering tools and education to end violence and abuse in relationships. We also offer intensive, long-term support rooted in Māori-focused practices, empowering families to lead positive change. Our Precinct Navigators serve as a point of contact, providing information and guidance on navigating the legal system. Additionally, we offer specialised programmes such as Toi Ora, aimed at young Tāne mandated by the courts to attend stopping violence programmes. Through our integrated approach, we strive to strengthen families, enhance safety, and foster positive outcomes in our community.



Individual and group programmes are available to learn about behaviours and ways to keep whānau safe. Groups consist of kōrero and action-based activities like mau rākau, and waka ama! We are a family court accredited stopping violence provider here in Christchurch and Ashburton.


We offer personalised support for well-being through our Te Herenga Tangata, Ngā Ara Tika, and Whānau Resilience services. These offerings deliver customised assessments and plans for whaiora, empowering them with tailored pathways and fostering resilience within whānau units. With a focus on strengthening individuals and driving positive change in their lives, our initiatives are committed to supporting whaiora on their unique journeys.
