National centre for family and whānau violence research and information
Pānui | Newsletter - Issue 99 - December 2020
Kia ora!

We are delighted to welcome our new Kaiwhakahaere, Charlotte Moore.

Charlotte (Rangitāne o Wairau/Pākehā) joins NZFVC having recently completed a PhD in sociology at the University of Auckland. Her research examines the impact of recent government policy shifts on the provision, funding and regulation of community provided social services in Aotearoa New Zealand. She also has a particular research interest in Māori social policy, having completed a Masters looking at the evolution of the Whānau Ora approach to social service delivery. Prior to completing her PhD she worked with WAVES Trust as a research analyst and family violence network coordinator

You will hear more from Charlotte in the New Year.

2020 has been a difficult year, particularly for people impacted by violence and people working in frontline services. We hope everyone is able to take time out to recharge and be refreshed for continuing challenges in 2021.

Stay safe, stay well.
