Donate to Wellington Sexual Abuse HELP - supporting survivors of sexual abuse in your community.
Every year, Wellington Sexual Abuse HELP supports over 700 survivors, their friends, families and whānau, who have experienced sexual abuse or assault.
This year, we can't run our annual street appeal due to COVID-19 restrictions. So during May and June, HELP volunteers will be bringing a different kind of appeal - Your Street Appeal - to our workplaces, neighbourhoods and other places people connect.
We're trying something new, and we hope you'll help.
Not only is this our biggest annual fundraiser, it's also an an important chance to talk to our communities about sexual violence - and ensure people across the Wellington region know where to seek support. This is so important right now - sexual abuse doesn't stop during lockdown!
We've armed our HELP volunteers with leaflets, quizzes and puzzles for them to share, inviting neighbours to take part and compete against one another - with social distancing adhered to of course. Your Street Appeal will also take place among work colleagues and virtual networks - because community comes in all shapes and sizes.
Please take part and donate to this important community service.
One of the wonderful outcomes of this period of rāhui (lockdown) is the community spirit it has ignited in our neighbourhoods. We hope Your Street Appeal will provide an opportunity to help you grow connections with your local community.
