Contact the Project
The Centrepoint Restoration Project bears witness to the events of the past at Centrepoint Community, the impacts of these events on the former children, and asks for redress by the adults. The project is a place for sharing information, be it articles, or high quality journalism, for survivors who would like to understand more what happened when they were children, and also for those who may not yet be ready to explore these issues - but may be ready in the future. The project is also an opportunity for connection, and tells survivors that they are not alone.
We would love to hear from you - whether it be to touch base to connect, to ask for help to find an old friend, to offer your comments on the project, or because you wish to be a part of the kaupapa. Either way, we would appreciate to hearing from you.
Dr Caroline Ansley
Caroline Ansley is a medical doctor, living in the South Island of Aotearoa New Zealand. She started the Centrepoint Restoration Project in 2015. She lived at Centrepoint in the mid 1980s when she was a child. She is interested in advocating for the interests of and the needs of children of the community who do not have a voice. She is also interested in increasing awareness and reducing stigma around involvement and recovery from cult or high control groups, and the abuse that these groups inevitably cause.
The Centrepoint Restoration Project is working with other stakeholders in the cult recovery space in New Zealand to create a cross-group advocacy organisation to support survivors and reduce the influence of high-demand groups in New Zealand.
