Gandhi Nivas promotes safety as reoffending declines

We are proud to be associated with ‘Gandhi Nivas,’ a Programme that marks its first anniversary today (April 1) with renewed commitment to create safer homes with perpetrators of domestic violence turning a new leaf.

Police Minister Judith Collins will be among a number of other dignitaries at the facility located at 20 Station Road, Otahuhu Auckland at 1 pm.

They would include Superintendent John Tims, District Commander of Counties Manukau Police who challenged the Members of his South Asian Advisory Board ‘to something concrete to strengthen the concept of ‘safe communities through safer homes,’ Governance Committee Chair Ranjna Patel, Members of the Committee and others involved with the Programme.

Good Augury

A number of factors augur well for the first anniversary, the most important of which is a Massey University School of Psychology Study which said that the number of men offending after intervention (through the Gandhi Nivas Programme) declined by 43.75% while the frequency of offending dropped by 57.6%.

We will carry a detailed analysis of the Study in our next issue.

‘Gandhi Nivas’ is a Programme that provides emergency housing, counselling and referral to social services for men who have either been issued with a ‘Police Safety Order,’ or are otherwise involved in Police matters related to family violence.
