New Zealanders from refugee backgrounds participating fully in New Zealand life
Strong Families Strong Children Resource Kit
Our Strong Families Programme 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. ChangeMakers worked with representatives from a number of different communities to create a DVD and resource kit to support the creation of strong families and help address some of the resettlement challenges that these families face.
The DVD is accompanied by a resource booklet to help communities and agency staff talk about topics such as the relationship between generations, cultural differences, pressures on families, family violence and how they are dealt with, and raising children in a new country without the support of an extended family.
You can request a copy of the resource kit by completing the Order Form here and sending it to the address on the form. The charge is for cost recovery purposes only.
Our Board members with Wellington Mayor Justin Lester and MP Golriz Ghahraman
Our Board is governed by people from refugee backgrounds who represent the interests of former refugees generally rather then their communities specifically. We also have 20% representation from other communities.
