A support group for people who choose to leave the Gloriavale Christian Community on the West Coast is relieved by the latest action by police and Oranga Tamariki.
The two agencies have been at the West Coast community since Monday, as part of an investigation into the group.
The community has been the subject of allegations of sexual abuse and abusing workers’ rights.
A former Gloriavale member also said she and her family have been threatened, since police and Oranga Tamariki arrived.
