Battered Women’s Trust

24/7 Crisis Line remains OPEN during Covid-19 pandemic for family violence support. Phone: 0800 REFUGE (733843) or 03 364 8900.


Kia ora whanau. We’re in a time of uncertainty of what the next 4 weeks will look like. I want to ensure our whanau and community that our services are STILL AVAILABLE, though we will be running things a little differently.

Our OFFICE IS CLOSED and will only be providing support to clients over the phone, video call or txt messages as our team will be working from home. 

Our CRISIS-LINE IS STILL OPEN and AVAILABLE 24/7, and we will still be providing safe-housing to our women and children who are at risk. However, there will be strict screening in place to help prevent the spread of any viruses.
If you or a loved one is in danger, please ring 111.

Crisis-Line is 0800 733843
