Workshops to Support Community, Family and Child Wellbeing 

Aviva, with support from Child Matters, has developed a training opportunity designed to look at factors that impact on the wellbeing of children and their families. Two versions of the trainisng have been developed and piloted - one for members fo the community, and one for those who work with children.

This April we will offfer the workshops to those who work with children. The two-day training takes place on Wednesdays 17 and 24 April, from 9am-5pm. This training is designed to increase understanding of what parents and caregivers want and need to help ensure child and whanau wellbeing.

This is an opportunity to help you unpack and reflect on a variety of topics related to child and whanau safety and wellbeing, from the viewpoint of those with lived experience.

The training includes:

  • highlighting the complexities families face when seeking support;
