  • The Backbone Collective New Zealand (map)

Dec 2017 - Backbone decided to conduct another survey on the Family Court – this time to find out how the Family Court responds to children when they and their mothers have experienced violence and abuse.

'Survey Three - Children & The Family Court' was released in October 2017, asking mothers how their children have been effected by the Family Court.

This resulting report was released in Dec 2017, revealing a rich and powerful set of data that is deeply troubling.
