All Charities Community Support Our charities Women
Wellington Women's Refuge
Wellington Women’s Refuge provides support to survivors of domestic violence, walking alongside and empowering them to make safe decisions for their future. It provides a safe-house and also supports women and their children in the community.
The Refuge operates a community office and a 24-hour crisis telephone line. Less than half of the annual operating costs come via government funding and it needs to raise the rest elsewhere.
The difference your gift could make:
$10 could cover a child's session on the Refuge’s 10 session programme for children who have experienced domestic violence;
$20 could provide a night for a woman in the Refuge’s safe-house;
$50 could provide groceries for a family struggling financially at a time of crisis;
$70 could cover a counselling session with its specialist domestic violence counsellor;
$100 could cover five nights in the safe-house.
