Kapiti Living Without Violence (KLWV) provides individual and group violence prevention programmes for men, women and youth on the Kapiti Coast. Violence can be sexual, physical, mental, emotional and verbal abuse. Our programmes provide people with the tools to live a violent free lifestyle by supporting people to change their attitudes, underlying beliefs and behaviours. Programme participants learn how to gain control of their actions in a way that is respectful to themselves and others.
We also work to raise public awareness and collaborate with other agencies to reduce violence in the community.
It can be difficult to face your own violent behavior – but you can choose to change how you deal with your emotions and bring about long-term positive changes. We believe in the ability of all people to make the necessary changes that will allow their partners, children and families to live free from violence and abuse.
