Welcome to HAIP

Hamilton Abuse Intervention Project

HAIP stands for Hamilton Abuse Intervention Project. Founded in 1991 for the victims of family harm, we help whanau achieve their potential free from violence and abuse.

Our purpose is to develop loving whanau so that they thrive.

One of the ways we achieve this is through our non violence programmes, which are both mandated and self referral. From July 2018 to June 2019 we helped 2038 men and 565 women.

Programmes run on a weekly basis for 2 hours at a time. There are programmes for both men and women.

Men's programmes

HAIP can support you and your whanau to live a life free of violence and abuse.

Although domestic violence may be common, it isn’t normal and it’s not okay; it can be different for you.

HAIP can help you and your whanau live a life free of violence and abuse.

Women's programmes

At HAIP we understand how complex family violence can be and we are here to support and guide wahine to realise their own power in breaking free from violent relationships.

One way we do this is through women’s safety programmes. We also provide advocacy services.
