About Us

Napier Women's Refuge is an organisation for women and children. Every year, we help hundreds of people, and distribute information to more than a 1000 households where the police were called to attend a domestic incident.

Specifically, our principles are to:

  • Create a violence-free environment and community.

  • Provide support, advice and help to empower women and children.

  • Establish refuge facilities for and by Maori women.

  • Develop culturally appropriate and complementary services within our structures for women of different cultures.

  Women and her child

The Napier Women's Refuge is an Incorporated Society with IRD Tax Exemption and has Charitable Status with the Charities Commission. We rely on the support of the Napier community to help women and children live free from domestic violence.
