ChatBus Appeal 2021

$1,665 donated
Given by 29 generous donors in 24 days

Our annual street appeal has been cancelled this year due to Covid, so we have moved our appeal online.


ChatBus exists to make a big difference to little lives creating happier futures.

We are 100% funded by charitable grants and private donations. Last year 1,100 Dunedin children had access to free counselling across 23 primary schools. 54% of our children refer themselves, because they trust ChatBus.

ChatBus is a safe place for children to go when they don't want to talk to anyone else. We hear everything from friendship issues, bullying, family bereavement and divorce, to serious cases of neglect or abuse that no-one else even suspected.

Please help us to continue to help as many of these children as we can, by offering them free counselling.

About us

Every day children feel the pain of broken families, disappointment, grief and loss, and changing friendships. ChatBus offers counsellors who listen and understand.

Use of funds

All money raised goes towards providing free counselling sessions for Dunedin primary and intermediate children.
