What's new

When parents decide to part ways, it is the start of a major transformation to family life as they once knew it. Amidst all the emotion that occurs when a relationship ends, creating interim arrangements takes up a lot of energy and focus. Once these immediate decisions have been made, the next phase shifts the focus to navigating the new normal and this can also be quite a challenge for parents.

This is the second instalment in Fair Way’s new Separation Series, focusing on the experiences and challenges families face during separation. The process of ending a relationship and separating has many challenges.

Nau mai haere mai, welcome to the first edition of Kōrero, our new quarterly newsletter, which is designed to keep you informed about what's going on in Fair Way's ACC service. As the whakataukī above emphasises, it is the people who are of the most importance to us, the people in our team, the people who we assist, and the people like yourselves that we work with closely every day.

On the 25th of April each year, New Zealanders and Australians commemorate the sacrifices their ancestors made on the shores of Gallipoli in 1915 for the first time as “ANZACs” (Australian & New Zealand Army Corps), as well as remembering those involved in subsequent conflicts thereafter.

But what have we learnt?

History seems to repeat itself, in various ways, time and time again, with human beings in the form of tyrants wishing to establish dominance for themselves, their country, and over others, in the world that we live in.

How does family justice respond to ground zero resilience?

Earthquakes. Pandemics. Flash floods. Landslides. Loss of lives. Loss of livelihoods. Loss of possessions. Destroyed homes. Power cuts. Communication cuts. Loss of internet. Destroyed crops. Disconnected and divided communities. Misplaced tangata whenua. Widespread catastrophe.

This is the first instalment in Fair Way’s new Separation Series, focusing on the experiences and challenges families face during separation.  This piece was written by Samantha de Coning.
