Acknowledgements

I want to express my gratitude and acknowledge the many people who have supported me and provided valuable input and advice to the project. I am indebted to you and hope I have been able to adequately reflect your contributions in my final report. This project has been a fascinating and rewarding journey for me and I am hopeful it will provide a pathway ahead for both Māori and non-Māori in the pursuit of improving safety, both in the home and the community. In particular, I would like to thank those who are pioneering a new partnership between Government services and Māori, and making a significant contribution to the types of projects outlined in this report.
