Kia ora koutou katoa,
The work of our organisation has grown significantly in recent years, as we’ve strengthened and diversified the training and support that we offer. To reflect this development, I’m pleased to share with you today that we are changing our name from Sexual Abuse Prevention Network to RespectEd Aotearoa.
Over the last 18 months, we’ve talked to many of you – our clients, partners, funders and friends – and with your encouragement, we sought out a name that would accurately represent the positive change we have facilitated in your organisations and communities.
We believe RespectEd Aotearoa does that. It reflects the work we do to support social and behavioural change, to build respectful relationships and positive cultures, to work towards our vision of Aotearoa free from sexual harm.
Thank you to all of you who have supported us on this journey. We look forward to continuing to serve our communities under our new name, RespectEd Aotearoa.
