Otepoti Collective Against Sexual Abuse sexual violence prevention programme co-ordinator Hazel Potterton  is pleased to be working in the organisation’s new education office in Dunbar House.

Demand for Ocasa’s counselling service increased after the Covid-19 lockdown, so education staff moved into a new space to make room for extra counsellors.

The Moray Pl office will remain predominantly for crisis and counselling support. Ms Potterton said she was "super relieved" to find and move into the new office as it alleviated some pressure.

The organisation ran the ACC’s Mates and Dates programme in five high schools this term, and will go to three more schools next term.

Our journalists are your neighbours

We are the South's eyes and ears in crucial council meetings, at court hearings, on the sidelines of sporting events and on the frontline of breaking news.

As our region faces uncharted waters in the wake of a global pandemic, Otago Daily Times continues to bring you local stories that matter.

We employ local journalists and photographers to tell your stories, as other outlets cut local coverage in favour of stories told out of Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.
