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 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.
