DVFree is a national programme that partners with employers to help managers and workers understand the nature of domestic violence and support employees as soon as they disclose the problems. Once senior management / CEO support is established, we provide basic awareness training for all employees and more in-depth training for identified ‘contact people’. We help prepare relevant HR policy and procedures for the agency/company, provide training for staff, and continue to support employers with consultation and evaluation.To find out more about getting DVFree going in your workplace, or for more information, you can contact Preventing Violence in the Home Te Kakano Tumanako by email, trainer at preventingviolence dot org dot nz, or by phone 09 303 3938.
