Family Action offers a range of services for those who have experienced abuse, trauma, family and sexual violence. These services include counselling, outreach, women’s refuge and youth programmes. We provide a caring confidential place to talk about issues that affect relationships, family & sexual violence, abuse and anger issues for children and young people. We also provide ChangeWorks programmes for youth at risk.
Family Action was formed following a 2 year collaboration project between Waitakere Abuse and Trauma Counselling Service (WATCS), Western Refuge (WRS) and ManAlive. At the beginning of 2012 it was decided that WATCS and WRS should merge and in 2016 they were joined by Changeworks Inc.
