North Harbour Living Without Violence (NHLWV) is a community organisation based in Takapuna, Auckland, New Zealand. Our main purpose is to facilitate respectful relationships. We do this by:
- Offering perpetrators of violence education programmes (both in groups and individually). These programmes help them stop their use of violence and abuse and to have respectful, equal relationships.
- Offering victims of abuse and/or violence support and education programmes (both in groups and individually). These programmes help people to recognise the signs (and effects) of abuse and violence and to live lives free of abuse and violence.
- Helping children and teenagers who have experienced abuse and/or violence to deal with the effects of this violence in healthy ways.
NHLWV is committed to the ongoing provision of high-quality domestic violence services. We emphasise the right of all people to live lives free from violence and abuse in all its forms.
