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 open for you to drop in, spend some time or simply reach out to for services such as social worker support, advocacy, information on women's rights and low-cost counselling. We also have an Op Shop with a variety of women's and children's clothes.   



We also run workshops, host regular and occasional groups and have rooms available to rent at low cost.

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:
