New World South Island

New World South Island has been a principal sponsor of our Crime Prevention Campaign for 25 years.

Their crucial funding has enabled us to save Kiwi lives and provide free educational information to the whole of the South Island.

We wanted to take this opportunity to thank them for the confidence of their support and their steadfast service to New Zealanders during this lockdown.

At the beginning of December, Rob Lindsay took over the role after a brief induction from the man himself. A very warm welcome to you Rob!

A ban on smoking in cars to protect children has officially been passed into law. This makes smoking or vaping in a car with anyone under the age of 18 an offence. The Police will have the discretion to issue $50 fines on the spot or refer people to support services. This gives our kids, who never asked to be exposed to second-hand smoke, a fighting chance at a life with healthy, clean lungs! This progressive new legislation continues our work towards New Zealands aspirational goal of a Smokefree 2025.

Calls to helplines increased by nearly a third in lockdown, with anxiety and alcohol relapse among the top concerns. When we are anxious or depressed, it can change the way we act, think and feel. Taking the first step is often the hardest part to reaching out and getting help. These anxiety and depression self-tests won’t give you a diagnosis but they may help you figure out if you’re showing any of the warning signs:

Thank you for this I have depression but I somehow was able to get through the Lockdown times without a worry only thing was in the first few weeks I had Norovirus and Gastroenteritis and got through this with the help of my amazing Husband and the next on the 2and of May my Darling Father in law passed away and My own Mother who turned 100 wasn't able to have any of her 6 Grown Children visit her or celebrate her Birthday.

Yeah my anxiety triggers depression if not treated. Not a nice place to be.

Thank you. I really hope this does help people understand the difference between the two illnesses and how they overlap.

Thank you. This is just how it can be.

the graph is very true

Brilliant diagram

Cops and weed do have a complicated relationship,

Thank you as I am depressed however coming into level two has helped greatly and I am somewhat optimistic now where two weeks ago I was contemplating the "Dalek" solution;- "Exterminate, Exterminate".

If they are unreported, how does anyone know?

John Brett they go unreported due to being silenced through intimidating behavior

Depending on your interpretation of sexual assault, which for professional victims is very wide indeed. However if that statistic is accurate police and the justice system would need a massive funding increase to cope with it, since at the moment apparently they're only coping with 5% of it. Sort of makes you wonder where all the fundings going.

Something DIRE in our police force + LEGAL system when this is happening. OInky "old boys" crap-women either virgins or whores

Fewer than half of children bullied online tell their parents or another adult what they are going through. Many children don’t say anything because they’re embarrassed or worried that their computer or mobile will be taken away from them.

Understand the problem and get practical guidance to deal with bullying in cyberspace: pmgt.org.nz/online-safety/#Cyberbullying

Section 6, CYFS Act 1989

New Zealand has seen over a 100% increase in recreational cycling during lockdown compared to the same period last year. These stats look set to continue with less Kiwis commuting to work and wanting to stay fit and active. However, more than 600 cyclists are seriously injured or killed by cycle injuries each year. Make sure you keep yourself and others safe on the roads: www.pmgt.org.nz/safer-communities/#Road-safety

We need safe cycle lanes separate from the road our roads are wide enough to do that at not high cost. Need a law change as well if there is a crash between a cyclist and motorist the motorist got the blaim. This create much more safety and respect.
