EPOCH (End Physical Punishment of Children) New Zealand Trust winds up

23 November 2015

At a Special General Meeting held on 17 November 2015 the Trustees of EPOCH (End Physical Punishment of Children) New Zealand Trust confirmed an earlier resolution to wind up the Trust.

The former Trustees of EPOCH New Zealand wish to thank the many organisations and individuals in New Zealand who supported the Trust and worked alongside it to achieve the historic law change in 2007 making it illegal to use physical punishment with children in New Zealand. The law change was a very positive step towards improving the lives of children in New Zealand and respecting their human rights. Attitudes towards the use of physical punishment are changing and fewer parents now regard it as acceptable to hit their children.
