Auckland Women’s Centre is committed to contributing toward a strong Rainbow community in Auckland.
We offer the services and resources outlined below to the Rainbow community. We undertake to ensure that they are ethical, confidential and accessible.
The Auckland Women’s Centre is a women-only space.
Rainbow Women's Social Night
Once a year we run a facilitated support group for women who are questioning their sexual orientation. The group runs for 7 weeks and is designed to be supportive, safe, non-judgemental women's space where you can ask questions and talk about same sex attraction.
