The Clearinghouse has compiled a range of definitions and perspectives on family violence, violence within whānau and sexual violence, with input from the sectors - thank you to all who contributed. They are not intended to be exhaustive or definitive but to highlight key documents and resources. If there are others you would like included here, please contact Nicola Paton, firstname.lastname@example.org. They will not specifically be discussed in the session but are to provide background for the discussion.
The readings, briefing papers and Whānau tu Rangatira and Caucus presentations from the Regional Hui in March are available here.
