About Us

Welcome, Nga Mihi

We are Te Rito, a collaboration of member organisations from around South Canterbury who work towards ending family violence. Our vision is a South Canterbury of safe and supportive families/whanau, and an end to abuse in the home.

Te Rito works to achieve this aim by…

  • Providing education and information opportunities in the community
  • Providing crisis and intervention contact resources to the individual and community
  • Ensuring members have strong interagency connections
  • Supporting regional and national anti-violence campaigns
  • Encouraging a culturally relevant approach because we are all unique
  • Maintaining a presence at community events to promote safe families
  • Providing information for those who deal with family violence
