Living Without Violence's new website

Domestic violence destroys families, homes and lives.

One organisation that’s helping to provide support to those affected is Living Without Violence. The Waiheke Island based branch of the organisation needed a website and Purple Dog was happy to provide a free website, under our free community website project.

The free website project is an initiative set up by Purple Dog Design to give back to the community.  Purple Dog is committed to donating free website design skills and time to any essential community organisation and LWV certainly qualifies – as one of the “under-sung heroes” of our community, with staff who are primarily volunteers, simply wanting to make a difference to people’s lives.

The excellent work done by LWV and it’s dedicated team cannot be underestimated with one in three women experiencing violence from a partner in their lifetime, while on average, 14 women are killed each year by a member of their own family and many  children and young people directly affected.

As well as providing support, advice and safety planning for those who are, or have, experienced family violence, the new LWV website also offers informative articles and a range of interesting and insightful Group Programmes for men women and children, as well as short term Individual and Couples Counselling.


We wish to acknowledge the support that Sol Harris at Purple Dog Design has provided to our agency in developing our website.

Sol generously gifted his time and advice, and we are very pleased with the result. He was always pleasant to deal with and patient when showing me how to manage the site.

Living Without Violence is very grateful for the service.
