Canterbury Can - Stand up Against Family Violence
High profile locals will front a Canterbury anti-family violence campaign to be launched on Saturday 31 August. Local champions for the campaign include Sir Mark Solomon, Reverend Mike Coleman, Anna Galvan, Sophia Fenwick, Sela Faletolu, Jason Gunn and Janine Gunn-Morrell.
The campaign aims to reduce family violence across Canterbury by changing attitudes which tolerate it. “We will be promoting the message that friends, family and neighbours should never ignore family violence,” spokesperson Jim Sole said. Sergeant Sole leads the Christchurch Police Family Safety Team.
Family violence is an important issue facing Canterbury families and whanau,” he said. Agencies from both government and community social services are acutely aware that the typical pattern, when a community has survived a major disaster, is to experience a significant increase in family violence.
If you are concerned about your family, a neighbour, a child or yourself please call 0800 456 450 (It’s not OK information line). If it’s an emergency please call the Police on 111.
