Our vision is to create communities which relate to the needs of young people, respond to them, and support them to achieve their potential.\nOur mission is to build a youth-centred community that provides meaningful service with leadership development processes that are ethical, sensitive and aware of the needs of people and their environment and fostering honesty, responsibility and potential. Youthline, as an organisation seeks to encompass five core values. These are community, a can do attitude, growth, diversity and realness.\nOur five aims for youth are:\n1. Young people know where to turn for help - Youthline works hard to build awareness by promoting services in schools, online and in the community. In a recent survey 80% of young people knew Youthline provided support services.\n2. Young people feel okay asking for help and get help when needed - Youthline is aware of the many barriers preventing young people from seeking help, i.e.: embarrassment, consider their problems are not big enough to ask for help, think their problem will go away, worried they may not be taken seriously and cost. We strive to reassure young people that Youthline services are inclusive and available to everyone irrespective of the size of their worries.\n3. Young people can help a friend through hard times - Apathy is an increasing concern amongst New Zealand youth. Youthline addresses this by providing youth development and leadership opportunities. Youthline has developed a volunteer pathway providing young people with skills to help others.\n4. Young people are engaged in things that light their fire - Youthline wants to see every young person reach their full potential, by helping youth identify their passion and teaching them to utilise their talents they become positive contributors to society.

Battered Women's Trusts mission (kaupapa) is to promote and operate services providing refuge, counseling, support, assistance, education and information to victims of family violence. 1 in 3 women in New Zealand are believed to have experienced physical and/or sexual intimate partner violence (IPV) in their lifetime. When psychological and emotional abuse is included, 55% have experienced IPV in their lifetime (Fanslow & Robinson, 2011). Three quarters of interpersonal offence by a family member are not reported to the police. Half of all homicides in New Zealand are the result of family violence. Battered Women's Support Group began in 1976 by a network of 40 Christchurch women who had some experience of domestic violence in their lives. It started as a support group, as at that time there were no support for women from the law, benefits or other community agencies. The group became one of the original 11 refuges in New Zealand, which collaborated in 1979 to set up a national association of independent refuges. Reformed in 1985 as the Battered Women's Trust our goal is to empower women to create a safe and healthy family life for themselves and their children, free of domestic violence. Our objective is to operate services providing safety, support, advocacy, counselling and education to women and children who are victims of domestic violence. Services are provided in the belief that women have within them the resources to overcome their experiences of violence. We are committed to providing a protective, supportive space, free from the violence and judgement that has been a part of many people's lives. "Just knowing I had somewhere safe for me an my child to go was awesome" " I really appreciated all the help and support I got ... it was good knowing someone was there for us: "I wouldn't be here [alive] today if it wasn't for Battered Women's Trust Support Group and Community Advocate".
