South Asian trials in Auckland

The work programme includes various activities, with a significant focus on trialling violence prevention activities within South Asian communities in Auckland.

‘South Asian’ encompasses people and communities from Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. It also includes diaspora communities such as Fijian Indian, as well as South Asian individuals from other continents such as Africa.

Data has told us that South Asian groups experience some of the highest levels of family and sexual violence within ethnic communities. Therefore, we are testing targeted, ethnic-specific activities to prevent violence and abuse with South Asian communities in Auckland. This will contribute to the developing evidence base for the work programme and strengthen its impact. Organisations interested in engaging in the South Asian trials in Auckland can express their interest here.
