Taupo Women’s Refuge

Taupo Women’s Refuge works together with women to make positive changes in our lives and the lives of our children. Taupo Women’s Refuge offers support, advice and education 24 hours a day and seven days a week. A Refuge safe house is also available to Women and children suffering the effects of family violence. We provide plans and walk alongside Women through their journey of positive change.

Please contact us at any time of the day or night when you are ready to talk. We will work together to help create a safer future for you or someone you know that may be or has been affected by Family Violence

Paid employees and a large number of dedicated volunteers allow Taupo Women’s Refuge to offer a 24 hour, 7 day a week, 365 days a year Crisis Line. We do not operate a call answering service. We endeavour to always provide a listening ear and an empathetic voice to take your call.

Taupo Women’s Refuge offers assistance, advice, information and at times home support.

Taupo Women’s Refuge networks and maintains positive relationships with the National Collective of Refuges although Taupo Women’s Refuge chooses to be a stand-alone entity and is not part of the collective. Taupo Women’s Refuge meets weekly with the Maori Women’s Refuge and other agencies to provide a coordinated approach to meeting the needs of the whanau with whom we work. It is these strong connections and relationships that contribute to Taupo Women’s Refuge offering a meaningful and effective service.
