New Zealand’s largest nation-wide organisation that supports and helps women and children experiencing family violence. Our vision is for all women and children in Aotearoa to live free from domestic and family violence.
Palmerston North Women’s Refuge is now operating at Level 2. It is okay to ask for help. Our services might look different at this time you may be asked some questions about your health. This will not prevent you from getting help. The impacts of the pandemic on families and communities do not cause violence, but it can mean abusers have more opportunities to perpetrate and conceal violence. Abusive people might withhold essential items from victims, scare tactics about the virus, or prevent them from seeking help
If it’s an emergency please ring 111.
Be Kind, Be safe and Be strong
