CRISIS LINE: 07 3771055

Taupō Women’s Refuge offers the unique service of providing a 24 hour phone line / crisis line
07 3771055.

We work hard to ensure you are always going to get a Refuge advocate at the end of the line to advise and assist you with your call.

The staff and Volunteers of Taupō Women’s Refuge work tirelessly in providing 24 hour access to the Refuge safe house and support and advocacy in eliminating Family Violence in our community.


Taupō Women’s Refuge provides a safe, warm, comfortable home to victims of Domestic Violence who need to leave their own homes for any reason.

This service provides women and children the time to put plans in place and to ensure their safety at the same time.

Usually a small rent is charged for your time in the safe house to cover day to day costs incurred, like power.


The Taupō Women’s Refuge facilitate both one-on-one and/or group support.   Content covers:

  • What is Family Violence?
  • What are the types of Family Violence?
  • Myths about Family Violence
  • Power and Control
  • Equality
  • Tactics used by Abusers
  • Why don’t Women just leave?
  • Safety plans for leaving
  • Safety plans for staying
  • Safety plans for after you have left
  • Protection Orders
  • How Violence effects Children
  • Healthy Relationships
  • Self Care

Although we take referrals from other agencies, we also welcome women who contact us directly who would like to take part.

Please enquire if childcare is needed whilst you attend the Taupō Women’s Refuge support group.


The role of Taupō Women’s Refuge is to support the decisions that you make.

If you are undecided about leaving your relationship, want to leave your relationship or have recently left your relationship we can support and advise you on the best and safest way to achieve this.

Taupō Women’s Refuge works very closely with other Taupō organisations to ensure the best outcomes for everyone. The sharing of some information with other agencies ensures everyone is working to the same page.
