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.

ART EXPO 2016 - Another successful fundraiser!

      Thanks to the generous support we received from local businesses and the artists themselves, we raised $6500

In a collaborative project for social good the Women’s Centre Rodney and 40 local artists  hosted a community led art exhibition at The Woolshed, Country Park, Matakana from 30th September to 9th October 2016. This ‘pop up’ exhibition organised by the Women’s Centre Rodney and local artists was a fundraiser for the Centre and an opportunity to support local artists in the community. With the support of well-known artists such as Star Gossage, Louise McGraw, Jenta Griffin, Awa Gillgren, Pat Betts, Alvin Ferguson, Rani Stigsdottir and Heather Owens exhibiting and many other prominent, new and emerging artists it was an opportunity for the community to come together and support a local charity and the arts.

The art exhibition included many differing mediums such as painting, sculpture, photography, jewellery, furniture, print and much more.

Opening night on 30th September was well attended by an enthusiastic crowd and with music provided by Dianne Morgan and Jade River Ukes, and Mark Lewington DJ. All proceeds from the exhibition went towards providing services for Women in the Rodney region.





















The Women’s Centre Rodney is committed to providing safe, confidential, low cost and effective counselling for individual women which abides by the Code of Ethics and Professional Standards of the National Association of Counsellors (NZAC). We have up to 6 subsidised sessions available with our counsellor.
