About us

Kapiti Living Without Violence originated in 1989 under the name of Kapiti Coast Men For Non-Violence. We are a registered Charitable Trust with the aim to provide educational and counselling services to stop or prevent violence within family/whanau and the wider community.

Our Vision: All People of the Kapiti region living safe and respectful relationships within families and communities.

Our Mission: Kapiti Living Without Violence promotes, supports and nurtures non-violent relationships for self, whanau and community. KLWV has 8 part-time staff and 5 Trust board members. Our staff are highly trained and experienced in the latest violence prevention services. We are a member of the National Network of Stopping Violence Services (Te Kupenga Whakaoti Mahi Patunga) and Voices Against Violence (an interagency collective of organisations that work collaboratively to reduce violence in the Kapiti Community).
