The Aunties

Walking alongside people to āwhi, guide, listen, and to provide a voice until they are confident enough to walk in their own 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 will walk alongside whānau to āwhi, guide, listen, and to provide a voice until whānau are confident enough to walk in their own power.

More about us

We work with around 500 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.

A huge thanks  22 May 2019

Posted by: The Aunties

I just wanted to personally thank all of you for keeping this ship afloat.

On Monday, I recieved a Queens Service Medal, which was a huge honour, but really a symbol of the work you continue to support me to do.

Whether it's food shopping, new glasses for an older woman or teen girl, heaters, blankets, bedding, outings, our regular payment to Te Whãnau Rangimarie....the list is endless of things and experiences that you continue to enable me to give to people who are really having a tough time of it.

And that's what the honour means to me.

I am just the face of this large army of very generous and loving human beings, and I thank you for allowing me to represent you, and carry your hearts into the lives of (mostly) women who are healing from, or in the midst of, family violence. Bless you.
