Covid-19 Update

Covid-19 Update: We're open for a range of services during the Level 4 lockdown. Use the Ask for an Appointment to get a phone appointment with us during this time. 

We will be able to help with: emergency contraception prescriptions, contraceptive pill repeats (and some contraceptive pill starts) and abortion information.

If you are due for your depo provera jab or for your implant to be changed, we will give you a prescription for the pill until we're able to do face-to-face appointments again. 

If you have an appointment booked with us in the next month, we will be in touch with you to reschedule.

Due to infection control requirements we are unable to provide any face-to-face consultations in our clinics during the lockdown.

Family Planning launches Domestic Violence policy

Thursday, December 1, 2016

Media Release

We are proud to be launching a Domestic Violence policy for our staff.

The policy provides paid leave, flexible working arrangements, agreed safety plans and access to employee assistance programmes for staff who are impacted by domestic violence.

Our chief executive Jackie Edmond says having a domestic violence policy in place signals to staff that the organisation takes family violence seriously – for our clients and for our staff - and will work to support anyone facing it at home.

“With this policy, staff will be able to access paid leave for medical appointments, court dates or domestic violence counselling,” says Ms Edmond.

Safety plans can also be put in place if necessary, including changing staff contact details, work locations or work times.

“We care about the health, safety and well-being of our staff. This policy is a small step towards ensuring this.”

The majority of Family Planning employees and clients are women. Women are far more likely to experience violence from an intimate partner.

Family Planning advocates for changing the policies, systems and beliefs which allow violence against women to continue.

Family Planning has clinics located throughout New Zealand. Use the clinic finder to find your nearest clinic.
