I founded Prepair NZ, an educational prevention strategy for domestic abuse in Aotearoa. We work with young women to educate them around healthy relationships, firstly with themselves and then with others. A core part of our work is to support young women to identify early signs of abuse, wether witnessed or experienced and to know how to manage them. We deliver our service through workshops and our online community.
