Welcome to Women’s Refuge
New Zealand’s largest nation-wide organisation that supports and helps women and children experiencing family violence. Our vision is for all women and children in Aotearoa to live free from domestic and family violence.
For most New Zealanders, when we need an escape we simply jump online and
book a getaway. But for some that isn’t an option. Every night in this country, over
167 women and children are too afraid to stay at home because of family violence.
Women’s Refuge is able to provide them with a safe place to stay, but it’s becoming
increasingly difficult to meet the financial needs of this essential service.
