The Women’s Centre is a pivotal, not-for-profit, service within the Christchurch community, providing a range of low and no-cost services in a women-only environment.
Our team of dedicated staff and volunteers positively impact the lives of thousands of Women each year through;
+ Free Counselling
+ Crisis Support
+ A quiet, women-only, drop-in space for a coffee, chat or just time out.
+ Low cost self-development courses
+ Free legal appointments with a female lawyer (15mins)
+ Advocacy, information and support with referral to services that can support women further.
+ An extensive library with book on topics such as abuse (DV, emotional, mental, sexual), death and dying, drugs and alcohol, eating disorders, feminist politics, health (alternative/ emotional/ mental/ physical), parenting, relationships, self-awareness, sexuality, and spirituality
+Low-rent rooms for other community organisations to see clients and have meetings or groups.
We rely on the generosity of donations and charitable grants to keep providing these vital supports to our community.
Your generous donation today will have a direct impact on the women in your community in a hugely positive way. We are so thankful for any amount that you are able to contribute.
We know we are making a difference when women say; “Without your support, free counselling, kindness, and simply offering a safe ‘space’ to ‘just be’, this is one woman who probably wouldn’t have made it.”
