The Aunties

Walking alongside people to āwhi, guide, listen, and to remind them of their power until they are confident enough to own that power.


The Aunties believe that everyone has the right to live with self-determination, dignity, and knowledge of their mana, in recognition of the value, joy and beauty of their true selves. We are a collective of people inspired to share our power, knowledge, passion, and resources with whānau who have lived in violence, however that may manifest.

The Aunties walk alongside whānau to āwhi, guide, listen, and remind of their innate power until whānau are confident enough to fully own their power.

More about us

We work with around 2000 people a year to provide access to emotional and practical resources. Primarily this is to women and their families who are seeking to heal from domestic violence.

Thank you all so much   28 November 2023

Kia Ora Koutou - I'm just popping in to tell you how very grateful we all are for your kindness and generosity. Whether you're a regular donor, or just a one off, it means everything to us.

Perhaps you would think of donating to our Xmas Cracker fundraising appeal. I'm not sure if you're aware, but every month each of the Aunties whanau women gets $500. At Xmas I'd really us to be able to double that amount, and take some more worries off their plate.

Many thanks again.
