The NZ Government has now committed to interim funding for 6 months for our crisis service, and to finding a long term sustainable funding solution. This is wonderful news for our community, and we're pleased to have this commitment.

However, we have one further request of you before the year is over.

We would like you to keep watch to ensure this commitment is followed through with. You've been champions of this service, and we hope we won't need to call on you again, but to ensure that Aucklanders have a viable long term crisis counselling service for sexual violence survivors, please join our facebook group at and become supporters at the link below.
