We recently celebrated the signing of an MOU between the regional Sexual Harm Services across Auckland. This partnership encompassed by the MOU is driven by the common objective of Family Action, Help and Counselling Services Centre to ensure that all victims of sexual harm receive appropriate support both at the time an incident of sexual harm occurs or is reported, and when proceeding through the Justice System.
The purpose of this MOU is to promote a collective working relationship between these key services.
