A pro­gramme aimed at ad­dress­ing New Zealand’s ap­palling fam­ily vi­o­lence statis­tics has been awarded $638,000 from the annual Ware­house Group Gala Din­ner. Par­ent­ing Place and The Sal­va­tion Army are work­ing in part­ner­ship to de­liver Break­through, which will sup­port fa­thers with a his­tory of vi­o­lence to build healthy, safe fam­ily re­la­tion­ships. The two year pro­gramme, which kicks off in February, in­volves three com­po­nents: a par­ent­ing course for fa­thers with a his­tory of vi­o­lence; an in­ten­sive, per­son­alised men­tor­ing pro­gramme; and a trans­for­ma­tional three-day fa­ther-child ad­ven­ture ex­pe­ri­ence. It costs about $1000 for a par­tic­i­pant to go through the pro­gramme.
