Help us support Women's Refuge is very proud to be able to support Women's Refuge, for them to continue their impactful and supportive work for women and children experiencing family violence.

Women's Refuge has a vision: for all women and children in Aotearoa to live free from domestic and family violence.

At Women’s Refuge, we provide the support and information you need when you’re dealing with violence in your life.


Domestic violence is a pattern of power, control and coercion. Abuse is not just physical, trust your intuition.
If something does not feel right to you, then it’s not OK.

If you are being abused, remember it’s not your fault. Violence is never okay. No one deserves to be abused, and we are always here to help you. At Women’s Refuge, we won’t judge you. We will listen to you and support you to make choices for your safety. Kia kaha.

Our services are confidential and mostly free. The only charge is rent if you use our safe houses, where you and your children can live if you need accommodation urgently. If you can’t afford this, don’t worry – our main concern is your safety.

Contact us anytime, or any of the many other useful services, government departments and women’s organisations who are all here to help you.
