Announcements and Information

About the Conference Host
For more than 25 years Te Kupenga Whakaoti Mahi Patunga / National Network of Family Violence Services has been at the forefront of efforts to stop family violence in Aotearoa/New Zealand. Our specialist family violence organisations work with victim/survivors, people who perpetrate violence and with tamariki / children, whānau and families, communities, iwi and hapu to provide powerful prevention campaigns and accessible and safe intervention, healing and recovery services when violence occurs.

Our bi-annual National Family Violence Conference brings together front-line family violence specialists, advocates, researchers and academics, policymakers as well as public servants across ten government ministries, ranging from justice, corrections and policing, health and education, and social well-being and development.

The Conference provides opportunities to expand and consolidate networks, share efforts to research and address issues occurring within the family violence prevention and response systems and to identify emerging trends, facilitating best practice and skills / knowledge development.

Our last conference sold out and attracted more than 300 delegates across both Aotearoa/New Zealand and Australia. This year we have booked a significantly larger venue to accommodate the expected 400-500 delegates at the newly opened and beautifully appointed Tākina Convention and Exhibition Centre in downtown Te Whanganui a Tara / Wellington.
