By Women - For Women

The Women’s Centre Rodney is a community-based organisation offering a range of affordable, quality services to meet the needs that arise for women in the community.

The Warkworth Centre is a space to sit quietly, link up with others, or browse our library. We welcome mothers to drop in to change and feed their baby. We provide a safe, caring and confidential environment.

We work towards social change, advocating for equality and empowerment of all women.

The Centre is open five days a week, Monday to Friday from 9.30am to 2.30pm, except during the Christmas holidays.
