About the Joint Venture Business Unit
In September 2018, a Joint Venture of ten government agencies was established to eliminate family violence and sexual violence in New Zealand. The Joint Venture Business Unit supports the Joint Venture to operate, including by being the Government's lead advisor on family violence and sexual violence from a whole system perspective. We lead with influence and collaboration to provide space, focus and momentum for government, Māori, communities, NGOs and private organisations to work together.
We work with our partners to provide strategic policy advice and recommendations to the Joint Venture and to Government, including on the strategic direction and actions to take. We ensure our advice is based on best practice, evidence and includes the voice of lived experience. We establish and maintain relationships with our partners, designing and developing better solutions that bring about transformative change and establishing effective governance. We monitor and report on the performance of the family violence and sexual violence system. We role model the change we wish to see and are a facilitator for Māori - Crown partnerships.
