Women's Safety Programmes

Our women’s safety services work to build resilience and strength in women who have been victims of family violence.

The service

Our women’s safety services work to build resilience and strength in women who have been victims of family violence.

  • We support women to develop strategies to stay safe and take a range of practical steps, including getting a Protection Order from the Family Court.
  • For women with a Protection Order, we offer 9–12 week group or individual programmes tailored to the needs of the women attending.

Our services empower and support women to 

  • develop strategies to keep themselves safe, including identifying and building supportive relationships
  • understand their protection order and how it works
  • Cope with change, especially regarding their parenting responsibilities
  • Value themselves and know they are much  more than a  victim of domestic violence
  • move towards a violence-free future — including taking care of their physical and emotional wellbeing, accessing community supports and dealing with financial matters.

The service is free for anyone referred by the Family Court or by Oranga Tamariki. Anyone referred by another agency can contact us about access to the service.
