Pānui | Newsletter - Issue 95 - July 2020
Kia ora!

We were pleased to host a webinar presented by Dr Neville Robertson and Rachel Smith earlier this month. The recording is now available to view - see below.

This month's Pānui | Newsletter includes research and resources focused on various communities including Māori, Pacific, women, young people, disabled people and LGBTIQ | Takatāpui communities. It also includes work being done in sectors that intersect with family and whānau violence including justice, disability and mental health. We hope these are useful and informative for your work.
