Pasifika Women
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.

Four local lawyers are volunteering their services to provide free legal advice in Warkworth every three weeks, with the first session set for Friday, March 16.

The hour-long clinic will fill a gap in the community. There are currently no Legal Aid lawyers in Warkworth and the nearest free Community Law Centres are in Waitemata or Whangarei.

The new service is the brainchild of Vicki Morrison-Shaw, an environment lawyer who lives near Matakana and is a trustee at Rodney Women’s Centre. She used to volunteer for a Citizens Advice Bureau legal clinic in Auckland and, when she moved here and found there was no such service locally, decided to set up one herself.

She contacted local lawyers to see if anyone would volunteer an hour of their time and three answered the call – Ben Lupton of Insight Legal, Tanya Wood of Minter Ellison Rudd Watts and Jackie Woolerton of Webster Malcolm Law.

Rodney Women’s Centre manager Colleen Julian says the new clinic will fill a real need in the Warkworth area, as she receives several enquiries a week from people seeking legal help.

The clinic will run between 9.30 and 10.30am every third Friday, with the female lawyers operating out of Rodney Women’s Centre in Morpeth Street and the male from Homebuilders Family Support Services in Hexham Street.
