For the month of November, we want to raise awareness and work together to end all forms of violence including family harm, elder and child abuse, sexual assault, gang violence, and more. These victimisations affect us all and can have lasting effects that spill into our everyday lives including at work and school.

To do your part this month, perhaps consider supporting a women’s refuge or work with Police in your area to host an info night on how to identify elder or child abuse in your community. This month’s campaign also coincides with White Ribbon Day on 25 November which is an internationally celebrated day that aims to prevent violence towards women.

Let us know how you’re spreading the ‘It’s Not OK’ message in your home or in your community by tagging us in your posts + using the following hashtag so we can see what you get up to:

Attached is our October update.
This Sunday the 2nd of November we will be having our monthly working bee on Bell's Track Ngaio. Meeting at 10.30 am end of Awarua Street. We will have tools but gardening gloves are essential as we will be weeding mostly, loppers would be good for we aim to get rid of as much gorse as possible.
We also meet every Tuesday morning at 11 am Awarua Street Station and work in that area for 2 hours.
Our aim is to bring back as much of the original forest to Ngaio a forest to support our wonderful bird life and help with depleting the carbon dioxide and making a healthier environment. Weeding is an important part, like predator control also many people are not aware but the exotic plants gone wild are a bigger threat to our environment than the introduced animals.
We desperately need more helpers also you might like to adopt a spot.
