We offer a variety of services including training, education, counselling, family whanau, group or individual support to anyone who has been impacted by violence or abuse in all its forms.
All services can be accessed as a self-referral, or through third party referrals including but not limited to health services, court services, child services, schools, government departments, self and parents. Mandated clients are fully funded and there is partial funding available for other clients. SVS Living Safe relies on fundraising to provide these services. Where possible a small koha is requested but will not be a barrier to accessing any support.
When I got here for first session I thought it was going to be a joke. After 2 or 3 sessions I
realised I was not perfect. I learned heaps. My eldest son tells me, 'Dad you’ve changed heaps, how come you’re not getting so angry anymore?' Oh don’t I? I haven’t noticed,
every-one else has.
