The Women's Centre Waitakere was initially established in 1983 as a space for like-minded women to come together to support each other and had a huge focus on advocacy, lobbying and women's health.
We felt strongly about the way in which women were not valued as mothers. Women's Centre Waitakere was initially known as West Auckland Women's Centre.
It is a safe space for women to come and find support through our counselling services or workshops, get information, learn new skills or be referred in the right direction. We work with several other community and government agencies so are able to direct women to the service they require.
The Centre is registered as a charitable entity under the Charities Act 2005 under registration number CC39193.
