National centre for family and whānau violence research and information
Pānui | Newsletter - Issue 93 - April/May 2020
Special COVID-19 edition
Kia ora!

Welcome to our new look Pānui.

This month we focus on the work that is being done in Aotearoa New Zealand and around the world as we respond to family violence during COVID-19.

Below we highlight the COVID-19 section of our website, which brings together information on family, whānau and sexual violence and COVID-19 in one place, including a new Te Whare Māori portal . The New Zealand Family Violence Clearinghouse (NZFVC) is very pleased to have partnered with Ngā Wai a Te Tūī Māori and Indigenous Research Centre to develop this.

We have also listed News and Events. The Events are primarily upcoming webinars and online courses you can participate in from wherever you are. The speed with which many organisations have stepped up to provide online events and learning opportunities is impressive. We also list a few in person conferences which may be able to go ahead in the future.
