Women accessing the Heretaunga Women’s Centre are welcomed in a spirit of warmth, compassion, and helpfulness. Our Centre offers a range of services, courses, programmes, and activities provided by women for women. Courses, programmes, and activities offered are aimed at promoting health and wellbeing and providing opportunities for social connection and engagement. These include self-development workshops, skill development sessions, support groups and a range of interest-based activities that enable women to connect with other women and feel involved in their community. Additionally, we provide a number of support services including counselling, therapeutic supports, SuperGrans Heretaunga life skills mentoring, legal advice and advocacy.
All activities at the Centre are offered as low/no cost where women are asked to give a koha for activities based on what they are able to afford (if anything). The majority of activities, programmes and services offered at the Centre including therapies and counselling are provided by those who volunteer their time and experience.
