We run a continuous range of self help groups and courses, e.g. Assertiveness, Self Esteem, Anger Management, Meditation and Self esteem for Teenage Girls.

The centre fills a special role in that it can be  anonymous, women can talk, they don’t need to fit a criteria – women can come and unload , enrol for a course or just have some quiet space.

This service is used daily and is essential for the Lower Hutt community. All women from all cultures and ages are welcome at the centre. The drop-in facilities provided are a meeting place for women, a time out space and a friendly environment for a chat and support.

We believe women need specific services for women-only to work on issues of self esteem, assertiveness and parenting skills.

The gender dynamics are not there which enables women to take responsibility for their own actions.

  • Women can realise their own strengths.
  • Women can experience the value in developing friendships and community.
  • Women-only is a safe environment for some women.
  • It shows the importance and value of women and what they do.
  • This is a place to look at gender difference, roles and their own place in that.
  • We believe the woman is the pivot of the family. Her self esteem and well-being is essential to the well-being of her family. Education and empowerment of the mother educates and empowers the family and the community.
