Supporting families to live violence-free

Aviva

Supporting children, women and men to become - and stay - free of violence


 

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.
