The Christchurch Aunties is a network of over 5,000 people helping women and children in Christchurch, Ashburton, and the Waimakariri and Selwyn Districts who have experienced family violence and vulnerability.

We also support other community organisations in Christchurch throughout the year such as Linwood Avenue Community Corner Trust, Dress For Success, and PIPS, and whose kaupapa is aligned with ours.
We collaborate with staff at organisations, and do not donate directly to individuals. If someone you know needs help or support, please check out the Family Services Directory for resources. Find out how you can help, and keep an eye out on our official public Facebook page for donation requests.
