Nelson Tasman Safe Haven Project
The Nelson Tasman Safe Haven project is an initiative with the whole community to raise awareness of bullying, and create opportunities to encourage positive community action.
Projects are based around “celebrating individuality, embracing, encouraging positive social norms and forging a future where we can all be treated with respect

This 10 month project is funded through the MSD’s Te Punanga Haumaru fund which supports community action to prevent bullying of children and young people. ‘It builds on the experience and expertise that already exists in communities. We encourage projects that are collaborative, have support from across the community and a clear plan to drive positive change. Young people should be involved in planning and implementation’ http://www.tph.org.nz/
