Christchurch Aunties

Christchurch Aunties

Christchurch Aunties coordinate practical support for women and children displaced by family harm through advocating agencies in Canterbury.


When women and children arrive at refuges, they often arrive with nothing more than they are wearing.

Christchurch Aunties, with the aid of a network of over 6300 volunteers and supporters, have become the vital link to more than 19 service providers in the family harm sector by sourcing donations to match requests from refuges and support agencies. Items such as; basic toiletries, mobile phones, security cameras, furniture, bedding, whiteware, Safelets and essential kitchen items.

We also support community organisations in Christchurch such as Linwood Avenue Community Corner Trust, Dress For Success and PIPS, whose kaupapa is closely aligned with ours. We collaborate where possible to ensure our service is as comprehensive as possible and connect with charities such as Butterfly Books and The Period Place.

Our mahi is simple, we get stuff done!

Providing basic essentials for women and children to start again reduces the mental load when deciding to move to a brighter future, free from abuse.

Let's do this together.
