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.
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.
Integrated Safety Response Pilot (ISRP)
In 2015, police were tasked with the primary responsibility of leading an Integrated Community Safety Response (FSN pilot later named Integrated Safety Response (ISR) pilot) in Hamilton and the Waikato policing district rural areas.
As a result, HAIP lost its lead agency role in this approach but remains a key agency contributing to the goals of ISR by accepting referrals and providing service/programmes for both men and women identified as needing support, providing specialist POS roles working with ISR tasking’s alongside IVS positions held by Refuge.
