Information sharing guidance for the family violence sector(external link)

We want to produce guidance that provides the family violence sector with certainty around when, how and why information can be shared under law. It needs to be understandable, easy to navigate quickly and workable for the day-to-day decisions made by people in the family violence sector. It should drive the right behaviours, building consent in as a first step while facilitating more consistent information sharing practices. The guidance must meet the needs of victims, families and whānau.
