Nau mai, haere mai,



to the Nelson Women's Centre Te Whare Āwhina Mō Ngā Wāhine Puawai - a supportive place where all women can flourish. 


We are a supportive place for all women and non-binary people in the heart of Nelson, New Zealand. 


We are a community and support centre, currently we have temporarily closed our social work and drop-in services due to a funding crisis. We are hoping to reinstate these later in the year.


We still have counselling available at an affordable rate, please get in contact at


We also run workshops, host regular and occasional groups and have rooms available to hire at low cost. Please contact the facilitators directly to join.

As a non-profit organisation we rely on external funding to support women. If you like to support us to support women, please consider volunteering with us or donate here:
