Description

We are a non-profit organisation providing support and advocacy to women and children affected by domestic violence in the Nelson region.

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:

  • talk to you if you’re worried about your safety in your relationship and help you make a Safety Plan
  • provide a safe secure location (safe house)  for women at immediate safety risk of further violence being perpetrated. This is assessed on a case by case basis and all safety factors are considered, to ensure women and children are in the safest possible place.
  • help you stand up for your needs whether or not you are thinking about leaving.

We are an independent, bicultural community organisation and have support services designed especially for children, young people, wāhine Māori, Pasefika women, migrant and refugee women and women with disabilities. We are a pathway to safety regardless of enthnicity, gender identity or socio-economic circumstances. 

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.
