What We Do
We are here to help you and your whanau live a life without violence. All our services are confidential and non-judgmental. Our advocates will tailor a personalised approach specific to your needs. A national women’s refuge member, Eastern Refuge is located across South Auckland.
Eastern Refuge has a committed group of volunteers with a variety of skills and expertise. We are always looking for new members to add to our diversity and scope and full training is provided.
Eastern Women’s Refuge values all those people, families, companies, funding bodies and government agencies that support our work in your community. Much of our work could not be done without the generous support of our sponsors.
We offer 24-hour specialist domestic violence intervention, education and social work services throughout South Auckland. Services can be accessed through our website or via the 24-hour crisis line service.
