Taranaki Women’s Refuge

We support women of all ages and cultures without discrimination.

If you are living in fear in your relationship or in your family, or know someone who is, there are so many ways we can help you right now. We provide a non-judgemental space in which to discuss your individual experiences and feelings with qualified social workers.

When a women’s safety is at risk we provide crisis intervention and Safehouse facilities. Most women who make use of our services are able to remain in their own homes. We provide them with information and support to make the changes that will enable them to live violence free lives.

Whatever choices women make, they are assured of our ongoing support. Our services are confidential and free.
