Auckland Council’s Long Term Plan has been made public. The parts most relevant to family and sexual violence are highlighted below (thanks to Auckland Council for this information):
Volume Two includes community safety and wellbeing. It also states “Council will also be developing a range of policies and strategies over the next several years focused on communities of interest, including older persons, youth, disabled persons and migrants. Resourcing to help facilitate community responses to the prevention of family and sexual violence is also included.”
Volume Three outlines funding for regional and local community development and safety initiatives (see pages 110-111 and 117-118).
Volume Four provides Local Board information and agreements. The Hibiscus and Bays Local Board and the Whau specifically mention family violence while all other Local Boards refer to community safety.
Funding to support family and sexual violence prevention falls under the heading of regional and local community safety and development.
The previously released Auckland Plan addendum includes the following action:
"Develop an integrated, multi-sector action plan for Auckland, to prevent and eliminate sexual, family and whanau violence."
Following the Regional Hui on Family and Sexual Violence in March, additional funding has been allocated via the Mayor’s budget. This money may be used to support the development of this plan.
