Welcome to the New Zealand Family Violence Clearinghouse

The New Zealand Family Violence Clearinghouse is your national centre for research and information on family and whānau violence in Aotearoa New Zealand. We provide information and resources for people working towards the elimination of family violence. The Clearinghouse is based at the School of Population Health, University of Auckland.

Message from the Co-Directors

"Family violence is a long-standing and complex problem. It has contributing factors from multiple levels of society. Family violence is preventable, however this will require long-term commitment and sustained action across many sectors. Along the way, we will continue to need high quality responses to those who have experienced violence, and those who have perpetrated it.  

Given both the complexity and the urgency of the problem, there is a critical need to ensure that we respond based on the best available information and evidence. This can save time and resources from being spent on activities that are detrimental, or ineffective.

Information and evidence in the field is still emerging. Further research investment is required as we continue to work toward answers. In the meantime, we are committed to providing a platform for accessible, high quality information about what is currently known, and an ‘institutional memory’ for what has been tried in the past."
