How you help

Friends Of Women’s Refuges Trust Supporting NZ Women’s Refuge

The money raised from this year’s NZ Sculpture OnShore event, will be donated to NZ Women’s Refuge by the Friends of Women’s Refuges Trust for the following initiatives:

Counselling for women

In 2017, the Friends of Women’s Refuge Counselling fund was established to provide sessions with a professional counsellor for women, to support them getting their lives back on track. This year, money raised through NZ Sculpture OnShore will go toward continuing the delivery of this crucial service.


Linen packs for each refuge.

This year, each refuge will receive new bed linen and towels.

Funding for each refuge to improve their safe house environment, including:

  • Refurbishment of some run down and dreary rooms to bring them up to a comfortable, bright and cheerful standard.
  • Purchasing of furniture and whiteware
  • Purchasing of soft furnishings and small kitchen appliances
  • Improvements to kitchens and bathrooms.
  • Installing children’s playground equipment

A big thank you to everyone involved for helping make this possible. From artists showcasing their works, to visiting the event, purchasing art, volunteering and spreading the word, you have helped women and children in NZ when they needed it the most.
