Well Women and Family Trust are a Not for Profit Charitable Trust founded 28 years ago in response to the Cartwright Enquiry. The vision was then, and still is to improve access to Cervical and Breast Screening, and more recently HPV Vaccination and Contraception including LARC. Our organisation achieves this vision by providing community and mobile services (8 clinics per week) across the Auckland region. Our focus is to remove the multitude of barriers that women face in accessing screening services. Another core component of our organsiation is the provision of NZQA and NSU approved Cervical Smear Taker Training. Well Women and Family Trust holds contracts with the Ministry of Health to provide Support to Screening Services, and have secured funding for provision of services till the end of 2023. We also rely on grants to assist us to provide other health promotion and community initiatives.
