Creating violence-free futures

Aviva is a Canterbury-based specialist family violence agency, established in 1973 as Christchurch Women’s Refuge.

Since then we have significantly evolved the support we offer and now work with children, women and men at any point of their journey; from crisis intervention, through family violence education to support of wider personal wellbeing.
