Inner City Women’s Group is an independent Charitable Trust and for almost 30 years we have supported women especially those affected by domestic violence. Inner City Women’s Group leads the way specialising in:
- women and anger

- parenting support for women affected by domestic violence
- women’s offender support services
ICWG is funded through government contracts, philanthropic trusts, and individual donations
The Board Role
The priority for the Board is to drive our Strategic plan to ensure ICWG is a long-term thriving, sustainable organisation. Are you in?
We are seeking expressions of interest for two to three positions on the ICWG Board.
We plan to appoint volunteer Board Members with a clear strategic focus who are well networked within their community, sector and committed to the work of ICWG.
Successful candidates will have some understanding of governance; can attend monthly meetings and commit to some email communication between meetings. The future Board members will agree to attend a building Board Members workshop (1 day and registration paid for by ICWG) and have skills and competencies in one or more of the following areas:
- Understanding the Not for Profit environment
- Sound cultural competency and in particular tikanga Maori
- Have some expertise in the domestic violence sector
- Can read and interpret financial information

Applicants who have experience working with clients from diverse backgrounds, particularly within Maori and Pacifica communities would provide an added benefit.
