Next year is going to be a big year for Aviva, marking 50 years since we opened our doors as New Zealand’s first refuge. This changed the social landscape of New Zealand permanently and, as a result, thousands of tamariki and wahine in Aotearoa have been welcomed, supported and made safe.

Now we work with people of all ages, genders, ethnicities, sexual orientation and experiences of family or sexual violence. Our mahi may have changed, yet our adaptive approach means our work remains as relevant and essential today, as always.

We will be celebrating 50 years of life saving work and breaking cycles of violence on 31 March 2023, with an evening at Te Pae in Christchurch City. We'd love you to join us, so look out for more information.
