Relationship Services Whakawhanaungatanga (now Relationships Aotearoa) undertook an evaluation of 15 years of domestic violence programme facilitation. Ideas were gathered from experienced facilitators, client evaluation forms were analysed and Māori staff were consulted. Key findings included the centrality of facilitator-client relationship to programme effectiveness. Issues of power, gender and culture were explored with recommendations for programme training, facilitation and regulations.
