The diverse group of independent, community-based social service agencies that make up the Jigsaw network advocate against all forms of child abuse, neglect, and family violence, and provide support to families so they can raise their children in safe and nurturing ways.

Jigsaw is excited about a new model of service being established in Canterbury to help families affected by violence.

This is a big change in the fundamental approach of violence related services, ranging from prevention, to early intervention, crisis management and wellbeing.
Tired of working in isolation, these agencies are pulling together and are committed to either fully or partially relocating their services as part of the deal. It’s wonderful seeing them work together in this way.
