Aroha in Action Family Start Hui

Aroha in Action Family Start Hui 2023 was a full-day online hui for Family Start whānau workers. Experienced kaikōrero and practitioners who work with whānau, specialising in family violence and sexual violence shared their knowledge focused on strengthening, responding and healing.

This hui was part of our mahi to support Family Start whānau workers across Aotearoa, a key step to deliver Te Aorerekura – the National Strategy to Eliminate Family Violence and Sexual Violence.
