Last year the Ministry of Social Development granted funds to SVS – Living Safe and four other family violence organisations in the Top of the South Island to develop five new programmes within each of the five communities.

Last year SVS – Living Safe became part of an exciting new initiative to develop a new service for its clients. The programme is out of the Ministry of Social Development and is called Whānau Resilience. We were one of five organisations in the Top of the South and one of dozens across New Zealand granted funds over five years to identify a need in our own community, design a service, implement it, and then assess it.
