Areas chosen for Family Safety Team pilot
A pilot programme aimed at reducing domestic violence will see Family Safety Teams established in Wairarapa/Hutt Valley, Auckland/Hamilton, Christchurch, and Counties Manukau, Justice Minister Phil Goff said today…
“While family violence reports may initially increase with greater awareness of effective services, the initiative is expected to reduce family violence.
“The new services will focus on high-risk situations and put in place preventive measures.” Mr Goff said the four sites had been chosen by a steering committee comprising representatives of relevant government agencies and the non-government agencies Women’s Refuge, Stopping Violence Services, Child Abuse Prevention Services, and Northern

Funding of $15.2 million over four years was made available in this year’s Budget, and the teams’ work will be evaluated over a three-year period.
