Welcome To The Women's Centre
We have been operating since 1986 providing a wealth of information and services to women in a safe, supportive and affirming environment. We work for the well-being of women by assisting, supporting and encouraging them to make informed decisions. The Centre is committed to the Te Tiriti o Waitangi.
Have your say… What are the three most prominent issues facing women in Aotearoa/New Zealand today?
We want to hear from you. Your views will help inform our advocacy for women. Emma, an ARA social work student on placement with Women’s Centre, will be collating your views.
You can contribute your views in any of the following ways: Private message through Facebook, email to email@example.com or call the Centre on 03 371 7414. Alternatively, you can visit us at the Centre and use the drop-box.
Please note that no names will be recorded. All responses will be deleted once results are collated and participants will have access to the final report on our website.
Thank you for your sharing your thoughts with us, we appreciate your input. Ngā mihi.
The Women’s Centre needs your help…
As a not for profit, the Women's Centre relies on grants and donations. The bulk of our work is carried out by volunteers with three part time paid positions in support.
Here are some endorsements…
“From the moment I entered the Women’s Centre I felt safe. I just don’t know where I would be if I had not sought this help.” (Counselling client)
“Coming to the Women’s Centre was a decision that has changed my life. Each week as I leave the Women’s Centre I feel gratitude and think how lucky our broken city is to have such a valuable resource.” (Counselling client)
“The Women’s Centre has a vitally important role into the wellbeing of our city, especially at this time of extra stress. Women are the backbone of our families. If women do well, their partners do well and their children do well. Women cannot do well without support. The Women’s Centre has always provided this support to women who need it. They have done it professionally, compassionately and with great forethought for the last 30 years. I have no hesitation in referring women to the Centre and have always had excellent feedback.”
(Dr Sue Bagshaw, Senior Medical Officer 298 Youth Health)
