Strong Families: supporting communities to develop strong families free of violence

ChangeMakers Refugee Forum’s Strong Families Programme: Healthy Relationships - Safe Families – Strong Communities, aims to provide access to information, advice and access to services which enables families and communities from refugee backgrounds to maintain strong, healthy families in New Zealand.

Ten Community Champions from refugee backgrounds are working with ChangeMakers and family support agencies to deliver workshops and activities that support families to thrive. These workshops will address challenges raised by young people, parents and families about keeping families healthy and strong in New Zealand. ChangeMakers and the Community Champions will also raise awareness amongst agencies about the strengths and experiences of refugee families as they raise their families in New Zealand.
