Jigsaw Central Lakes is a non profit organisation that works with family violence issues.  We provide a range services including counselling, social work, children’s services, youth services, women’s programmes and support for men and families.  We have offices in Queenstown and Alexandra and our geographical range is the Queenstown Lakes District and Central Otago regions.

Our service is a 24 hour service and is managed by a team of 12 staff and 14 volunteers who are all trained specifically to deal with family violence issues. 

Project 2012
Youth Affected By Violence

We are currently working on a 6 week programme that has been specifically designed to assist young people who have been affected by violence in the region.  This has been identified as a “gap” in service provision for our youth and with a focus provided for this age group we are aiming to achieve ongoing developments in service provision for them.  Participants will also be given the opportunity to provide feedback and contribute to any future developments relevant to young people in the community.  This project will assist young people to address any personal issues as a result of violence whilst been connected to appropriate support structures and have their voices taken into account.
