Tēnā koe. Welcome to Reframe Aotearoa.

Our mission

Reframe Aotearoa’s mission is to make accessible to everyone in New Zealand the support and skills they need for communication, conflict, and connectedness.

Our dream is for everyone to have the skills to be able to have good conversations and communicate through difficult situations – and access to professional support when they need it.

Our work and our services

Reframe’s work includes:

  • Designing and facilitating social change projects that build community capacity and resilience for communication, conflict and connectedness
  • Supporting people and organisations to deepen their capacity and skills through training, workshops, supervision
  • Providing direct support to people and organisations for issues with conflict and communication, including facilitation, mediation, and coaching

We work primarily with community groups, not-for-profits and NGOs, social enterprises, socially-minded businesses, and local government.

We focus on empowerment

Reframe focuses on empowering individuals, organisations and communities to do as much as they can themselves – supporting community-led and person-centred approaches.

This means Reframe provides capacity development and skills first, and interventions and formal processes second. We take this approach because we believe it’s better to support and empower people to do as much as possible themselves.

When people (and groups, organisations, communities, etc) are able to constructively self-manage conflicts and communication issues, they build their own capacity and resilience – and become better able to learn from complex experiences. Sometimes things do get too complex – and it’s ok to ask for help too.

Our practitioners are all communication specialists: professional, qualified and experienced facilitators and mediators.
