The Centre , is an accessible place for all women and children in West and greater Auckland, which values the choices and changes women wish to make for themselves.

Women who use the Centre are empowered through information, skills and resource sharing to exercise more control over their lives and make better informed choices with regard to the issues they face. The Centre provides a safe environment for women (and their children) who access their services, with emphasis on supporting women with a variety of  issues including family violence.

  • Recognise that women have their own social, cultural, political and financial rights as individuals.
  • That woman have the right to control their own health care through being able to make their own choices.
  • That the service and support provided focuses on a holistic approach to women’s well being.
