Family Works Central

Safe children. Strong families. Connected communities.

At Family Works, we’re building an Aotearoa where all tamariki, families and communities are safe, strong and connected. We’re a family-focused social service agency supporting vulnerable people to thrive.

Family Dispute Resolution

Our family resolution service provides a qualified family mediator who will listen to all points of view and help you reach an agreement about looking after your children – without the need to go to family court.

Awhi mai awhi atu

We understand that school and sometimes life in general can be hard. Family Works’ Awhi mai awhi atu is a school-based counselling programme that supports our tamariki and young people.

Counselling for all ages

Family Works provides counselling for individuals, including adults, teenagers and specialist children’s therapy, as well as relationship or couples counselling and family therapy/counselling.
