April 2018- Strategic Planning Day
CSC held a Strategic Planning Day on April 11th 2018. This was facilitated by Cissy Rock from “Community Think”.
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.

November 2017- Award from NZ Police
In late 2017, our Crisis Response Team Leader Tania Da Encarnacao was given special recognition ‘For Outstanding Performance of a Police Employee’ by NZ Police. Tania is not employed by NZ Police however they made an exception this year with the nomination’s committee saying, “Tania’s experience, training and compassion has often enabled investigators to achieve a positive outcome at times of very trying circumstances and had led to enhanced trust and confidence in Police”.
