Under Level 2, SVS – Living Safe will continue operating under normal business hours but working remotely. Our Nelson and Motueka offices will remained closed through 24 May. Clinicians remain
available to help clients by telephone or web meeting.
From Monday 25 May, our Nelson and Motueka offices will re-open. Clinicians will work with each client on the best way to meet: by telephone, by web meeting, or in person at the office. In the meantime, we are working diligently to put in place protocols around COVID-19 as recommended by the Ministry of Health to ensure our staff and all visitors are safe and protected.
Thank you and we look forward to seeing you in person soon.
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.
