Idea
The generalization of CW-approximation from plain homotopy theory to $G$ -equivariant homotopy theory is called $G$ -CW approximation :

For suitable equivariance groups $G$ , every topological G-space $X$ receives a $G$ -equivariant function $Q X \overset{f}{\longrightarrow} X$ from a G-CW complex $Q X$ , such that this restricts to a weak homotopy equivalence $f^H \;\colon (Q X)^H \to X^H$ on $H$ -fixed loci , for all suitable subgroups $H \subset G$ .

This should hold for $G$ a compact Lie group (such as a finite group ) and $H$ ranging over its closed subgroups .
