In 2014 Garth will continue his violence prevention work and has a range of projects under way. This involves delivering training for Pacific police and community representatives on gender issues, and researching effective assessment and management of men referred to behaviour-change programmes. He’ll also continue to make presentations on effectively involving men in violence prevention, following on from the issues paper he wrote in 2013 for the New Zealand Family Violence Clearinghouse (http://www.nzfvc.org.nz/issues-papers-5).
Alison continues her work with the Families Commission on the Status of Families report and programme implementation. She is also working on a review of residential services for people with Huntington’s Disease. She maintains her interest in Pacific communities and working with NGOs, and she is happy to donate time to supporting them with monitoring and evaluation and report writing.
Both of us are enjoying cycling adventures over the summer.
