We are a women’s organisation for women and their children, here to help prevent and stop family violence in New Zealand.
If you are experiencing any form of abuse in your family or your relationship, or know someone who is, there are many ways we can help you – for free, and confidentially.
We’d love to help whether you have children or not. Women’s Refuge can:
We are an independent, bicultural community organisation and have support services designed especially for children, young people, Māori women, Pasifika women and migrant and refugee women. We also assist lesbian women, older women and women with disabilities.
You can contact us at Women’s Refuge to get help and advice about talking to friends or family members you worry are being abused emotionally, physically, sexually, spiritually or financially.
We also run training programmes for communities and organisations to help educate people about the impact of domestic violence and how to work with women and children who have experienced it.
As New Zealand’s most significant domestic violence organisation, Women’s Refuge takes a strong advocacy role by working to positively change policy and attitudes about domestic violence. We do this by lobbying the government and running public campaigns – all to help keep women and children safe.
