Families, whānau and relationships are healthy, respectful and free from violence.
To provide access to high quality research and information on family and whānau violence.
The New Zealand Family Violence Clearinghouse is operated by the University of Auckland, under a contract funded by the Ministry of Justice.
The New Zealand Family Violence Clearinghouse was launched in 2005 in association with Te Rito: New Zealand Family Violence Prevention Strategy. Te Rito was developed in 2002 as a plan of action to reduce and eliminate family violence in Aotearoa New Zealand. In 2015, we held an event to mark 10 years of the Clearinghouse.
